Don't miss--the last exhibit at the Chester address for the CSU Art Gallery.  A great write-up here:

I was a student at CSU, briefly during the eighties, and the art building was my home.  The exhibit is bittersweet.  The building will be torn down for new student housing and the gallery will be relocated to Playhouse Square in the Middough Building.

The Energizer Bunny of the rose world--Uncle Joe

A fully open Uncle Joe rose

I grow a dark red 1972 hybrid tea rose, bred by the Kern Rose Nursery that was in Mentor. I does not produce a lot of blooms, and those it does produce seldom open fully to show their golden stamens. Of course with 75-80 petals of good substance to open, it is no wonder. This bud I photographed October 1.
