Admittedly, this screen grab doesn't do justice to the little house on the corner of Beach Drive SW and SW 61st, but anyone who lives on the water between Alki and Fauntleroy knows the colorful spot very well. Now the property's up for sale, and the rose bushes are yours for the taking (this Saturday). Here's the scoop:
ROSES, MORE ROSES, AND STILL MORE ROSES from 9 AM until 3 PM on Saturday, October 20th. The roses are available at SW 61st and Beach Drive SW, the former home of Rich and Ruth Fandek. This lovely rose garden has graced the West Seattle waterfront for years and years. It is presently being partially dismantled. About 60 rose bushes are still available.. It's a "YOU DIG" event. It will be helpful for you to bring your own shovel, pitch fork, pruner, and bucket. Rose bushes are available for a suggested donation of $!0. The activity is sponsored by the Mary-Martha Bible Study Circle of Hope Lutheran Church. All donations will be given in support of a professional Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod church worker student. Questions? Contact Irene Gehring at 937-9180 Is that supposed to be $10?
