Many of us are going through old papers and photos during the pandemic, awash in nostalgia and memories. The task is made much more poignant for we who love the Historic Rose Garden be-cause of how it is being diminished by city staff.

Volunteers propagated more than 400 roses for the cancelled Open Garden and offered them to the public in a virtual sale in June. Interest was immediate after a FaceBook posting and buyers emailed requests in early June and roses were ready for pickup in mid June. Roses were $20 each and earned funds to maintain the Historic Rose Garden. Many praised volunteers for the virtual sale and expressed happiness with their new roses.
We are not certain about propagating roses for sale for spring of 2021, but hope to hold an event.

It was fitting to celebrate Barbara Oliva's life in the Historic Rose Garden that she worked in for so long and also fitting the roses received a much needed drizzling rain on her day.
