Tyler, Texas - Rose Capital of America


[gallery] Next weekend is the Rose Festival in Tyler Texas but I will be on my girlfriends trip for lobsters and leaves in Southern Maine. So on Saturday Paul and I drove to Tyler to view the Rose Garden at what they say is the most exquisite time, right before or during the Rose Festival. When I asked Paul if he wanted to go I did not know what an important football day it was - OU Weekend and the Tech Game so I know Paul must really love me to give up his football games. Lucky for us the bulb sale was going on at the same time and I got many different bulbs and seeds. I spoke with several Master Gardeners who encouraged me to pursue my goal of becoming a Master Gardener someday. We also stopped by Chamblee's www.chambleeroses.com and I got several deals on roses that they were going to be discontinued for $2-$5.  Chamblee's Rose Nursery has been growing roses since 1953 specializing in EarthKind Landscape Roses which are environmentally friendly. My favorites are David Austin Roses. Thanks Paul for taking time to smell the roses with me today. I had a wonderful time with you in Tyler Texas.
