RICHLAND, Wash-- Other than the warmer weather coming just in time for Memorial Day Weekend it also helped roses bloom for the 61st Annual Rose Show in Richland.Sunday hundreds of beautiful roses were on display at the Shiloh Inn. The Tri-City Rose Society put on the show.
They almost canceled the show because they were afraid the unusual colder weather would prevent the flowers from blooming in time."We debated whether we should have it. We are very delighted that the people in the Tri-Cities know how to grow roses," said Tom Miles, member of the Tri-City Rose Society.About a dozen judges came to the show from all over the Northwest to pick the best roses.
