Who attends the 26th Annual Fall Roses Festival at the Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, Texas?  Anyone who loves to garden!  It will be held on November 4,5,6, 2016.  What a fun way to learn about propagating roses, landscaping, designing gardens and working within your garden climates.  It is a great opportunity to ask the experts all of the questions you have about gardening!  This is a free event and is a come and go event.  Food trucks will be on the grounds on Friday and Saturday.  At Brenham House Bed and Breakfast we love our antique roses and really don’t have to do too much to them in order for them to thrive.  You will want to add them to your gardens too!

We love the antique roses at The Antique Rose Emporium.  They are easy to grow and just give your yard such beauty.  We have guests who buy different ones for each of their grand children.  Imagine the kids as they grow up knowing there is a rose bush in Grandma’s yard in honor of them!  What an honor it was for my husband to get three rose bushes from his high school coach’s rose bed after he passed away, a few years ago.  All of the football players took rose bushes, Festival of Roses and it is such a great memory of Coach “Pappy’ Drennen.
