    Mr. Rose,

    My husband and I learned about you last week in Washington state when he sang the Lord’s Prayer at a friend’s memorial and the pastor told us of you. Glen Alden told us of you. The friend of Paul, whom the memorial was for, I believe her name was Kay, also attended Sunrise Chapel at some time in the past when you were there.
    My mother and brother are taking us on a trip to Tucson tomorrow and wondered about possibly seeing the chapel. My relatives love flowers and hiking, although my mother or husband could not do that now. If it fits into our schedule we’d love to see the natural beauty of the area. We will be seeing someone’s farm and also the Sand Hill Cranes. We stay overnight in Douglas visiting relatives.
    Just thought I’d touch base with you in case something might work out. When do you do your next nature walk? I may buy you book for my mother; or find it in the local library. Might it be there in Phoenix?
    Hoping to meet you,
    elaine and jerry mcclain

    Just wondering when your flower walks on Mt. Lemmon will be starting up this summer? Enjoyed them so much last summer and fall and want to get these walks onto my calendar. 🙂 Linda Stelljes (Santa Catalina Volunteer Patrol)

      Sorry to be so long replying. The walks start officially on the first Thursday in June, but we will probably have a couple of them the last two Thursdays in May.

    It is always a pleasure to chance upon you and Ed on the various trails we wander.
    Patty and I randomly select our hikes, so we enjoy and look forward to seeing you and Ed out and about.

    You mentioned that Ed spotted an orchid along the trail. Did you get a photograph? If not what’s the name the flower?

    Be well,
    Rick & Patty

      Thanks for the comment. We actually saw three different Coral Root Orchids – the Spring, Spotted and Striped (Wisteriana, Maculata, Striata). This last hike it was the striped. I have pictures I have taken before but did not try to get any new pictures.

    “The walks start officially on the first Thursday in June…”
    Hello Frank,
    Will you do any guided hikes in July? Are they always on a Thursday? I have to take off for Convention on June 25th- July 3rd. I will be back in Silver City from July 6th or so until July 21st. I would like to drive over with a friend or two. I rise extremely early (3-4 am) in the morning, love to drive, and it’s only about 2.5 – 3 hours from here. We’d nearly be back home before dark!

    • Frank Rose says:

    Dear Mr. Rose –
    My maiden name is “Nash”. George and Mary Gayle are my parents. I have several of your paintings and you are one of my favorite artists. I will be in Tucson in November to visit Mom and I wondered if you are still painting and have any art work for sale? I would love to see you again too. I hope all is well with you and your family.

    Much love from Northern California,

    Hi Frank, I’ve admired your work (both painting and floral photography) for many years. Could you please share the process a painter must use to apply for the Mountain Oyster Club event? I suppose it’s possible they may have to be interested in one’s work and it works the other direction, as well. Thanks, Vivian

    • Frank Rose says:

      Thanks for the question. You apply to the Mountain Oyster Club Art Committee, 6400 East El Dorado Circle,Suite C100, Tucson, 85715. Good luck.
