SAVANNAH ROSE FESTIVAL

ROSES ARE ABLOOM
IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA


April 29th - May 1st
Savannah Rose Festival
and
Home Flower Show
sponsored by
Hospice Savannah
and
Savannah Area Council of Garden Clubs, Inc.
1388 Eisenhower Drive Savannah, Georgia 31411


THE SECRET IS OUT!!


The Blue of the water and the reflection of the trees set a tranquil mood.
There is a ten acre Botanical Garden on the southside of Savannah and it's beauty is breathtaking. Many Savannahians and Tourists aren't even aware of this "Secret Garden" It is an oasis tucked away near a parkway, a six lane boulevard, government and doctors offices, and a strip mall. Those in the know can be seen in the gardens, picnicking, strolling, and generally enjoying the solitude. 

The Reinhard House is an 1800's German farmhouse rescued from demolition and moved to the site.
It is used as headquarters for the Savannah Area Council of Garden Clubs, Inc.
The Savannah Area Council of Garden Club, Inc operates the Botanical Garden with the support of member garden clubs, and a multitude of volunteers.
Volunteers are guided by a host of Master Gardner volunteers. They are assisted by members of the community doing a good deed and some who just like to get their hands dirty.
SACGC, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that is funded by member garden clubs, donations and small, special events held in the house or garden. Please visit their website HERE for additional information about the garden and the Savannah Rose Festival.
There is beauty along every path.
If you are going to be in the Savannah area between April 29th and May 1st you do not want to miss this "Spectacle of Spring in Savannah". It would make for a wonderful weekend. Better still plan a special trip to the Rose Festival then visit the rest of the Hostess City. Volunteers will be throughout the garden to make your visit memorable.  
Signs of Spring everywhere.

This and much more awaits you at the Savannah Rose Festival.



Please join us for a glorious weekend enjoying the Creator's gifts of natural beauty and the hardworking volunteers who are His stewards. See you there!

Oh how I adore roses. My dear mother had the most beautiful rose garden in the house I grew up in. I now live on the sub tropical Aussie coast and roses are quite tricky to grow here. Thank you Ginger, for your lovely comments on my blog.

Happy Blues! Wonderful roses - could almost catch the fragrance. What a neat place. I saw you on various comments over Pink Saturday and then over on Sweet Nothings I saw your icon and hopped over. Nice to meet you. I looked at the post about the season. I like what you had to say about it and God's reason for spring ... very nice. Jenn
