GARDEN MEETING - BOLDEN GARDEN, FREMONT CA

JULY 16, 2016
 Several members and friends of East Bay Rose Society joined the family and neighbors of Thomas and Erika Bolden in their newly planted garden for a barbeque/potluck luncheon.
Bolden Garden
Thomas and his sons planted rose bushes along their side fence in a gently curving arrangement of beds.
Bolden Garden
This was the holding area for over a year as the wild back yard was weeded, tilled, fertilized and a watering system was installed for future rose beds. There are still some potted "victims" to be planted.
Thomas Bolden and Peter Cook
