June is rose month and more rose societies are holding their rose shows in June.  Rose Show is the perfect place to see beautiful roses.  There are rose shows held across the country that you might want to see on weekends.  They are free events so why not take advantage of them and enjoy yourself.  Some shows have rose arrangements section which is wonderful.  You’ll have a chance to meet knowledgeable rosarians who can answer all your rose-related questions.  They are a nice and friendly group of people.  You may want to join the local rose society sponsoring the rose show which entitles you to a trial membership in the American Rose Society.
