Around 250 people visited the Ward’s beautiful garden, enjoying a Devonshire tea while taking in views of roses of every kind.

With all proceeds going to the Canowindra Garden Club to be used for town improvements, Mrs Ward said Morris Park is next on the list.

“We raised $2500 which was just fantastic. We’re spending it on improvements in Morris Park like garden seats and a memorial rose garden that we look after in honour of our founding member, Margo Chick,” she said.

“There’s also a kiosk there that we’re going to refurbish so we’d just like to really thank everyone for coming and supporting the event.”

The couple’s niece and now a top ten finalist in the Telstra Road to Discovery talent development program, singer/songwriter Sophie Payten also attended the event and sang the afternoon away.

“It was just lovely having Sophie sing and we were all sitting there thinking how one day we’ll be able to say we heard her before she becomes really famous,” Anne laughed.

Luke Gordon from Eureka Plants in Canowindra also proved to be a valued guest speaker, sharing his knowledge of all things roses.

Eureka Plants has been specialising in roses for 30 years, with Luke also holding a horticulture degree from Melbourne University.

Rose diseases, summer pruning, how to look after different varieties including Floribundas, old English roses, hybrid roses, hybrid teas and mini roses.

A range of exciting new rose types were also on the agenda at the popular afternoon.
