One thought on “Consulting Rosarians

  1. I met a very nice lady in front of the Senior Center last week while she was pruning the roses in front of the building. I just wanted to thank her for her tips and enthusiasm! I have bought fish food and am waiting for my first buds. If only I could get more sunlight up here in Pioneer.

    Thank you for your help.
