Red roses for Bellingen ladies

Ulrieke Kethel picks Australian-bred 'Marjorie Palmer' roses at The Rose Patch in Hydes Creek, so that Bellingen belles can have their annual Valentine's Day fix of sweet-smelling, locally grown blooms today. Mrs Kethel and her husband, Ian, supply roses to Bellingen outlets and other bed-and-breakfast establishments as well as providing bunches for guests at their own The Rose Patch B&B. But Ulrieke Kethel said she would be unlikely to get a red rose herself today 'because all our red roses are earmarked ? this is the one day of the year everyone wants all red roses'. The Rose Patch, which also sells rose plants, will have an Open Day on April 1 and 2 this year to help raise funds for an orphanage in Uganda.
