Hello All,

 

Hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving Turkeys!  Here in NZ we are into our Rose Season.  Here is a pic of a  few in our beds.  On the right is Rock’N  Roll one of Sam McGready’s raising, behind it Strawbery Ice and in the background Loving Memory.  Sam is an interesting man – of Irish birth (he met the great Guy L. Wilson).  He is a third generation Rosarian and has bred many famous roses but says his favourite flower is the daffodil!  I have tried to get him to write his reminiscences about Guy Wilson but he says he is “retired” and that he was very young at the time!  Pity, as I am sure he could provide some interesting recollections,

 

Cheers,

 

Peter
