The Woods Hole Historical Museum will host a walk around the village looking at the rambler roses developed by Michael Walsh at the turn of the century. Rosarian Gretchen Ward Warren who specializes in the Walsh roses will lead the walk, which will last about an hour and a half.
The roses were developed in Woods Hole just behind the Museum and have been growing in gardens and on fences around the village for more than one hundred years, mostly unidentified and unheralded. The Museum has been bringing these beautiful flowers back into the public eye, with workshops and walks.
This next walk has been scheduled to coincide with the peak of the bloom, and will be held Thursday morning, June 30 at 10:30. People may call the Museum at 508-548-7270 to reserve a space. The numbers of participants will be limited to 20.
