Greater Atlanta Rose Society Annual Rose Show

The Greater Atlanta Rose Society held their annual rose show today. What is clear about rose shows is they are singularly focused upon the quality of the flower. I have grown garden roses off and on for a long time, and the quality of roses today was a revelation.

Welcome to the examination of form and beauty at the highest level in gardening.

Committed rose gardeners are a breed apart. The dedication required to grow beautiful roses is not for the faint of heart. Participants in rose shows ratchet the standards way up. Rose gardeners who exhibit at rose shows seem to chase perfection in bloom.

There is a category for small rose gardens and to qualify you need less than fifty rose shrubs in your garden. Less than fifty.
