Climbing 'Old Blush' growing on my office roof. Find it, along with other rose delectables here
Last summer, on the tail end of a SOUTHERN LIVING garden shoot, I had the great pleasure, honor really, of meeting the esteemed Dr. William Welch... garden writer and educator, Southern Garden historian, heirloom bulb advocate, antique rose rustler and rosarian extraordinaire, and one of the founders of the Antique Rose Emporium, from whence this spectacular rose came. Dr. Welch and his lovely wife, Lucille, along with two Oklahoma friends...
I was quite humbled to have Dr. Welch, and our mutual friend Bubba, then garden editor at SL, both rock-star caliber gardeners, as my garden guests.

while snow bound these last few days...)
And now it can be your good fortune to meet and visit with Dr. Welch as well! As a guest of the Oklahoma Horticultural Society, he will be speaking this weekend in both Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Details from the OHS program are below.
