Thursday, November 17, 10:00 am – 11:30 am – The Roses at the End of the Road


With an illustrated lecture on Thursday, November 17, at 10:00 a. m., Pat Leuchtman will take us on a virtual stroll to see her country garden. The talk is part of the Mass Hort Library’s Author Series, and it is free and open to the public. The author of the new book, The Roses at the End of the Road, began planting her Rose Walk 30 years ago and will tell us about romantic old fashioned roses as well as hardy and disease resistant roses. For 30 years, she has written a column for The Recorder in Greenfield, Massachusetts, and other newspapers, which include The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the Burlington Free Press. She has also written for magazines, including Horticulture and Organic Gardening. Her book is made up of lively essays about life among the roses and with the commonweeder.com blog. Books will be available for purchase.  Pre-registration is desirable but not required. To tell us that you are coming, please call Librarian Maureen Horn at 617-933-4912 or email her at mhorn@masshort.org.
