Burling Leong is the owner and founder of Burlington Rose Nursery in Visalia, CA. She is coming to our next meeting to give an update on her ongoing project to bring period roses to the Hearst Castle Rose Gardens. Burling will bring us up to date on what is going on at Hearst Castle before, during, and after the Covid pandemic.
Changes at the Castle, new roses being added to the rose garden, and when she believes she will be finished with the restoration of the rose garden.
The Emerald Glen Rose Garden Prunathon is Complete!
Many thanks to the Prunathon Crew for completing pruning for the 2023 season at Emerald Glen's rose garden!
Many, many thanks to those who braved the mud, the cold and the thorns:
Lou Evans, Andy Miller, Mark Mintz, Linda Nardy, Sheryl Reed, Joanne Strickland, Kathy Knabke, Barbara Norkus, Carl Meier, Helen Moyot and her husband, Tom Jefferson and May Lee
It's difficult to dedicate precious free time to bending, clipping and raking, even in a California mild-winter. Working in the garden is strenuous but important because, without it, we wouldn't have a free meeting room for monthly meetings and free rooms for our very popular April Rose show. With the going rate for each library room rental being $90.00 an hour, we're toiling for club fiscal solvency. Without pruning and deadheading, the necessary increase in dues might make us the former Mount Diablo Rose Society. Sorry for being so serious about, what is, a rewarding experience. Working in the garden as a dead header or pruner has always been joyful. During these last two years, especially, meeting with friends in the fresh air, made COVID days not just bearable, but happily anticipated.
