Celebration of Old Roses purchases/including from Vintage
The Celebration in El Cerrito CA is a lovely event. A chance to see wonderful labeled specimens of roses and greet some rosey friends.
My garden is filling up but that didn't stop me from making some purchases. Vintage Gardens has always sold there but this year the offerings were under the auspices of Friends of Vintage Roses, the non-profit that has taken over Gregg's garden.
I was happy to be able to purchase some of the very last of Vintage's roses that I assume were the tail end from the sale.
