SJHRG Visitors Today.

Post by Mel Hul » Tue, 12 Nov 1996 04:00:00



I had the pleasure of hosting Prof. Chuck and Bugman today, Sunday, in the
Garden.  Nice people!  We toured the Garden and visited Tom Liggett's nursery to
look at the maternity ward (greenhouse) and interesting roses.

Great rose chatter, eyeballing and nose sniffing even this late in the season
(We're letting the roses set hips now).

We found that one of the seedlings we got last year from Harvey Davidson is
doing especially well.  It is a cupped shrubby stripe... cupped form; orchid and
white!  Red Radience type fragrance and thornless or nearly so.  Very unusual

We revarified that Cyril Richards and balling white has an incredably powerful
fruity fragrance.  To bad it seldom blooms well here.

Baldo took tip cuttings to analyse whether the midge has made it this far.

Each left with the obligatory 'Doc', polyantha.

Tuesday, with any luck at all, I'll get to show Bill Hillman around.

There sure are some great people in this group!

Aargh - and I was not there! The Bugman is so cool and Tom Liggett is
one of the few rosarians on earth that I clam up in front of because I
don't want to miss a word. And Mel - whose enthusiasm is legendary -
is the greatest host (Loan helps) And then there is Prof Bigelow who I
think has been dodging me because he thinks I'm weird. Whatever.

Pet, surely you are letting your imagination run away with you, how
could any rgr regular have gotten the impression that you (or any of us
for that matter, I mean with the exception of the alien of course) are
weird?! ;)

Well, just to prove the unwierd exist...  I had the great pleasure of showing
the SJHRG to Bill and Jane Hillman today.  Real... nice... folks!  Bill's raised
roses since before most of you were born (1949).  I value his praise for the
work we have done.  And this late in the year.

My fondest wish is that all of you could come to our festival on April 5th when
the garden will be GLORIOUS!

Hello Mel,
I will make every attempt to be at the festival in April!  What a
glorius time that will be.
You will be receiving more plants from me this spring, early!  Lady Bird
Johnson (HT) a gorgeous c***among them.  Fill that garden up!
What a great job you are all doing.

Mel,  Janie and myself thank you for the tour of the SJHRG and the green
house where you do so much of the work for the garden. We had not
expcected to see such a large garden or one so far advanced for only
being there for a litle over a year.  The garden Janie remembered when
she lived there is now gone and this one is sure a great replacement for
it. I  had read a lot on RGR about it but still was not expecting such a
l
arge garden and one with healthy roses in such good condition.  While it
was not a good time of year being the end of the blooming season it still
had a lot of blooms to be seen.  Would like to make another trip in
spring but can't in April as will be juging every week end in April and
will be judges chair for one of them.  Wanted to cut down on judging next
year and already have 5!  We may try the trip to SJ to visit Janies
brother in May and can see the garden again then and see how our Chrysler
Imperial is doing.  
   Anyone planing to visit the SJHRG be sure to bring good hiking shoes
as there is a lot of walking to do and you will want to see all the rose
beds.

Does this mean you're dodging him for some other reason?
Do tell, P.C, do tell.

Hey, Pet, if I can ever find a rental for the roses and the blasted
dog, I will be heading down south in December. Should I look you up?
Will anything be in bloom.? Where the heck is Pasadena anyway?

museumy type place)

Thanks.  I'm very proud of the praise we have gotten from great rosarians
such as you.  I hope we can catch up with the garden enough to continue to
merit your approbation and I hope you'll make it back in Spring.

Bill caused me to count the beds.  There are 80 of them!  A few small, but
most large.  I echo Bill's admonition to bring good shoes.

Now...  Who's next??? :-)
