Hobbies- growing roses and ice skating (when I can find ice)
My garden is smaller than my interest in roses, so I cannot grow nearly every variety I want. So local ARS membership and this rose forum help fill in the void.
I started growing roses as a pre-teen (can’t remember how it occurred to me) in western Washington state. Loved it. Went off to college and did not have a chance to garden for about eight years. When I started up again, I was in the Gulf Coast region and had to learn all about the different demands of this climate. That’s why I joined a local rose society. It’s been a lot of fun.
I live in: United States
My zone is: 9a/ coastal LA
