How I Started with Roses: In Spring of 1991 I bought two roses from Payless (now Rite Aid) to plant at my new home in Auburn. Shortly afterward, I noticed the announcement in the Auburn Journal of the Rose Society meeting at the library. While waiting to go into the meeting, I noticed two "little older ladies" carrying refreshments inside and I thought "Oh no..! this could be an all ladies garden club and maybe I'll feel odd". As it turned out, there were many couples there, and I was introduced to many members. There was a rose bush with many beautiful spring blooms. I especially fell in love with the bloom of 'French Lace' exhibited by Kay White (now deceased) and asked her where I could buy one. Of course she recommended Eisley Nursery. At the following month's meeting I joined the society, and the month after that, I joined the American Rose Society. After 22 years I'm still a member of both and finding new roses that I can't resist buying in hopes of finding a newer "favorite rose". So far, my favorite is still the white floribunda, 'French Lace'.
