Thirty-three eminent gardeners on their favorite rose Among the plant kingdom, Rosa is a relatively small genus, comprising only about one hundred species around the globe. But as these species intercross, they have given rise to as many as thirty thousand cultivars, making the rose perhaps the most various of all plants grown in gardens-and one of the most treasured. This one-of-a-kind collection gathers together thirty-three eminent gardeners and rosarians, including Graham Stuart Thomas, Christopher Lloyd, Thomas C. Cooper, Joe Eck, Michael Pollan, Anne Raver, Page Dickey, Thomas Christopher, David Austin, Peter Beales, Dan Hinkley, and Jamaica Kincaid. Each writes about a favored rose--Rosarie de l'Ha

Award-winning and hugely popular artist Rosie Sanders showcases the beauty of the rose in her follow up to Rosie Sanders Flowers. Over 80 stunning paintings and sketches are shown for the first time. The artist writes a personal letter on each of her rose paintings (to be given unopened to the final recipient or buyer of the painting). Many of these personal letters sit alongside the paintings, as they explain the creative and emotional process she went through to create it. The book is a revealing insight into the artist's muse and the author's sketches and drawings are also included to show the full artistic process. The book is introduced by an extended essay on the resonance of the rose – all across the world – in our art, literature, poetry, folklore and gardens. The rose emblem is timeless and this book not only celebrates its beauty in art but tells the story of the rose as one of nature's most powerful motifs.

At the end of the Lewis and Clark Exposition in 1905, the president of the Portland Street Fair and Carnival Association, E.W. Rowe, presented the idea of an annual festival to Portland mayor Harry Lane. From that idea came the first Rose Festival, called the Rose Carnival and Fiesta, held June 20-22, 1907. It was hailed as a huge success. "There is no reason in the world why Portland should not hold a rose festival every year," remarked the Oregonian on June 21. "Everyone will be happier and better all the rest of the year for the festival of roses." And indeed, that has been the case. From just a three-day event, the Rose Festival has expanded over the years to include many activities covering several months every spring and summer.

White Roses is of a collection of creative works written by Dr. McCaa over a period of years for the glorification of the Lord. The poems are original except for the entries made by Mr. Booker T. Myles, Jr. and Kyah and Krystyanna (brother and granddaughters) who have given her permission to include their created works in this book. The title of the book, White Roses came to her after seeking God for a title. For some, white roses symbolize the death of a love one. But God revealed to her that it was not a sorrowful remembrance of loved ones. With her love for arranged white roses and the guidance of her Lord, the title of the book became a reality. The writer indicates that the remembrance of loved ones should not be just set for a particular day. This book is in remembrance of all the loved ones who have gone on to be with the Lord. The written Words of our Savior add meaning to why we still have hope in a world that is plagued with selfishness and greed. White Roses lead us to a quiet place of harmony. It is the author’s desire that each page brings the reader closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Mrs. McCaa would love to have comments sent to her via email about this book. This book as well as her first book, Poems of Inspiration (and future books) will continue to help support her scholarship fund that was started over fifteen years ago. That is, the Jones, Jones, Vidal and Durham Book scholarship Fund. This fund is in memory of the Jones family, (her mother’s family), one of the best musicians that ever lived, her adopted brother and college friend, Audrey Jones; her big Italian/black adopted brother, and also outstanding musician and college friend, Miguel Vidal; and her daughter’s best friend Cortez Durham, who was like a son. Cortez was serving in the armed forces when his Black Hawk helicopter crashed. Your purchase of this book will help students with the purchase of books while in college.
