How I Started with Roses: When I bought my house in 1999, there were about a dozen pitiful roses in the back yard. My new neighbor had grown roses in the Santa Rosa area for 30 years. She coached me on rehabbing my roses as well as planting new ones. I fell in love with rose gardening and collecting. I joined ARS and then found the local societies. From there, I became a CR, Horticulture Judge, Arrangement Judge, and finally a Master Rosarian. Life is good.
