ROSES IN SONG 24

Good Year For The Roses

Elvis Costello

I can hardly bear the sight of lipstick On the cigarettes there in the ashtray Lying cold the way you left them But at least your lips caressed them while you packed Or the lip-print on a half-filled cup of coffee That you poured and didn't drink But at least you thought you wanted it That's so much more than I can say for me

What a good year for the roses Many blooms still linger there The lawn could stand another mowing Funny I don't even care As you turn to walk away As the door behind you closes The only thing I have to say It's been a good year for the roses

After three full years of marriage It's the first time that you haven't made the bed I guess the reason we're not talking There's so little left to say we haven't said While a million thoughts go racing through my mind I find I haven't said a word From the bedroom the familiar sound Of our baby's crying goes unheard

What a good year for the roses Many blooms still linger there The lawn could stand another mowing Funny I don't even care As you turn to walk away As the door behind you closes The only thing I have to say It's been a good year for the roses

World Rose Convention

Rosafrica 2012

16th World Rose Convention

October 11th-18th 2012

South Africa will host the 2012 World Rose Convention, Rosafrica 2012, in Johannesburg in October next year.

Held every three years under the auspices of the World Federation of Rose Societies, the show was last held in Canada and next year, rosarians from various countries will attend events in several provinces, including KwaZulu-Natal.

Rosafrica will be celebrated with a large rose show at the Rosebank Union Campus in Hurlingham, Johannesburg from October 12-14, 2012.

Rose grower Ludwig Taschner will be unveiling a brand new “Rosafrica” rose later this year and plans are being made to take visitors to rose events across South Africa.

Celebrations start in KwaZulu-Natal and will be spearheaded by the Midlands Rose Society.

Known as the top rose exhibition team in the country, the Midlands Rose Society is expected to build an amazing rose display in the Olympia Hall at the Sunday Tribune Garden and Leisure Show in Pietermaritzburg in early October 2012.

Visitors will then move to the World Rose Show in Johannesburg before travelling south to the Bloemfontein Rose Show. Delegates will end their South African experience in the Western Cape where they are expected to visit rose gardens and wine farms.
