Thanks, Elaine -- I'd love to see this place fully restored. And if it ever is, I have a garden that could probably use some volunteer work too, LOL!

Would be nice if a volunteer group would go in and do some trimming & weeding - hope a buyer is found soon!

I just received an email from one of the owners of Heaven Sent Roses in Pfafftown, NC. She and her husband have had some medical problems and difficulties with plant diseases, with employees leaving or passing away, and being overwhelmed with more work keeping up the place than they are able to manage, which is why they're looking to sell the nursery and house and move elsewhere. But she assured me the place is open for business and doing well financially; they have always operated on a serendipitous basis or by appointment, as they don't have enough employees to keep the place staffed at all times. They have had little problem with theft even so. Their shortage of needed help explains the somewhat neglected appearance, but the place is not defunct by any means. So, not a tragedy as I thought! Wonderful! I just hope they can find someone to take the place off their hands so they can retire, someone who will keep up the grounds and gardens, which are open to the public, in good condition for many years to come. Thank you all for your interest in this little drama!
