October is a great time to see roses in the Garden. As the weather cools, roses perk up and start to bloom a little more vigorously before the really cold weather sets in. Come see the Bicentennial Rose Garden in its full glory this month.
Also October 20-21, The Tidewater Rose Society will host its annual rose show with the theme “A Flower in Every Pot, A Rose in Every Garden.” The show is open to the public on these dates and times:
Saturday, October 20, 2012: 1 – 5 p.m.
Sunday, October 21, 2012: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
