Our roses are going into their dormant phase; however, our attention must now be focused on  their spring awakening. Rose care is a fine art and as such, it is expensive to promote and sustain their gorgeous blooms which exist for all of us to enjoy. Many of you might not realize that the roses in public spaces throughout the Village of Southampton, whether at the extensive rose garden at the Roger’s Memorial Library, in front of the Southampton Cultural Center, on the side of Shippy’s restaurant, by Town and Country real estate, or in front of Little Red restaurant, that they are all privately funded by the Southampton Rose Society (SRS).  Even today, many are under the impression that the roses are publicly funded but this is not the case. Consequently, the SRS relies on donors like you to help us in our endeavor to beautify the Village with magnificent roses.
