The American Rose Society prints a calendar each year. They choose pictures from roses submitted from members and sell the calendars to support the American Rose Society. Anyone can buy them and they are very reasonably priced at $15.00. I just bought 7 of them and I probably will buy more because they make perfect gifts. Today I thought I would share my pictures that will be in the American Rose Society 2018 Calendar, and these are the pictures by other members:
Most of us use our phones for planning and scheduling but it helps to have one physical calendar to be able to see and write down plans for what everyone is doing for the year. If you are going to have one print calendar make it the most beautiful one available, make it the one from the American Rose Society.
