Rose Showing Party
June is National rose month and what better way to celebrate than with a party to show how easy it is to show roses! Mary Fulgham and Randy Keen recently won four trophies at the American Rose Society’s National Show held in Shreveport last month. Their biggest trophy was for a challenge class of three exhibition form Hybrid Tea roses. They also won trophies for an open bloom Mini-Flora, Miniature/Mini-Flora bloom in a bowl, and made the Floribunda Court of Honor. Mary and Randy grow over 200 hundred roses at their home in Bellaire and have been members of HRS since 1978.
Mary is currently Co-Editor of The Rose-Ette, HRS Past President, ARS Master Rosarian and Horticultural Judge. Mary and Randy are encouraging members to bring at least one rose to our meeting on Thursday, June 8th so they can walk you through the easy process of reading the show schedule and entering your bloom into the show. HRS is hosting the South Central District Show on October 28th at the Bellaire Civic Center and we are hoping our members will participate. If you can’t bring a rose, come anyway to watch the interesting “tricks of the trade” and enjoy the in-person fellowship with others who love roses.
This month, we are starting back our hospitality table at meetings and encourage members to bring an appetizer or dessert to share. If you cannot join us in person at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church located at 1819 Heights Blvd., Houston TX 77008, you can also join us from the comfort of your home on a computer, tablet, or smartphone using GoTo Meeting at
