PRUNING - LINCOLN PARK ROSE GARDEN - ALAMEDA, CA

JANUARY 7 & 28, 2017
Members of the East Bay Rose Society met to work at the Rose Garden in Lincoln Park. January 7 was predicted to be rainy and as predicted - it started coming down in heavy gusts by Noon. We came back on January 28 - a sunny day - to finish the job.

The public gathers around as the pruning lessons begin.
