American Rose;Nov/Dec2011, Vol. 41 Issue 6, p6
The author reflects on exhibiting roses. He believes that better, much more rewarding and satisfying than the exhibition of dogs, quilts or other items that can be repeatedly shown year after year are the exhibiting of roses as well as other flowers and other impermanent objects. He notes that one gets only one shot when putting up roses for an exhibit then starts over again when preparing for the next show or event.
