June 16 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Roses take center stage on Saturday. There are two wonderful events that are all about roses next weekend, and they both take place at the same location.

The first is the Spokane Rose Society's annual rose show and the second is "A Day in the Garden," both held at Northland Rosarium, 9405 S. Williams Lane, in southwest Spokane. There will be live jazz, art vendors, self-guided tours of the display gardens, rose sales, and a food vendor during this event.

In addition to my column, you can learn more about the rose show by visiting the Rose Society's web site. For directions and other information (including directions to get there) about Northland Rosarium, you can go to their site.

It should be a fun day and a great opportunity to discover the best roses to grow in your garden!
