Fall Color in the Sacramento Cemetery

Hi -
I'll be leading the final garden tour of the season in the Sacramento Historic Rose Garden this Saturday, Nov 19, at 10 am. I know that most of you are nowhere near Sacramento, but if anybody happens to be nearby, come join me! The tea roses have been gorgeous this fall, and there are plenty of hips and autumn leaves to add to the colorful mix. There's to be some rain on Friday, perhaps, but the forecast looks pretty good for Saturday.

The cemetery's address is 1000 Broadway, Sacramento.

Some of the roses have very nice fall foliage, such as this rose that we believe is R. cinnamomea (although I must confess that I took this photo in early December a couple of years ago).

Truly lovely! If I didn't have this Saturday already booked, I'd be tempted to make the drive.

I just looked at the pictures on the website, and it looks absolutely beautiful! I just wish I lived closer!

Good luck with the tour! Wish I could be there to see that lovely fall color.

Wish we could be with you!
I LOVE that garden in Fall/Winter.

Oh, well -- I love it in all seasons, when you come right down to it -- but it's even lovely in December, in a drizzling rain. Really!
