The web is a great place to learn more about the Rose!
Visit my twitter page at twitter.com/BradJalbert - it is a lot of fun and a great spot for light chatter about roses.
Another example is Carolyn Parker's Rose Notes, a newsletter/blog full of beautiful photos and news about the rose world.
The World Rose Festival has it's e-newsletter - visit its website to subscribe!
It is getting close to Christmas - make sure to include some wonderful red roses on your dinner table!
