After I accomplished a few things around here on Friday morning, I skipped out for the afternoon to go to Hollywood Cemetery. I need to have some additional photos for the program I am presenting at the Heritage Rose Foundation Conference in Florida in November ... some photos of the cemetery itself, not just my usual close-ups of flowers and monuments.
I had my pruners with me, as I always do, and I snipped some cuttings of a few roses that I really want to propagate. Two of the cuttings had lovely flowers on them, which I put into a bud vase to enjoy in the house and to use on the table at yesterday's Pot Luck Garden Social.
The Garden Social was small and very, very enjoyable. The rain that was predicted for the afternoon stayed south of us, though the temperature was a bit on the cool side for a garden party. We had a delightful afternoon, meeting new friends, reconnecting with old friends, walking through the roses, eating good food, and enjoying each other's company.
Later this morning, I'm heading north to DC to speak to the Potomac Rose Society about Rose Rosette Disease. This means that I have to dress nicely and behave myself ... which can sometimes be a challenge for me. Wish me luck.
I hope your Sunday is a good one.
Happy Sunday, Everyone!!
