About Carrie Renee Turner
Carrie Renee Turner discovered her love for roses several years ago upon purchasing a home in South Central Pennsylvania that already had what’s known as an OGR, or Old Garden Rose. A few years later, she planted 4 disease-resistant, ever-blooming roses in a barren area of her much to be desired yard. Although her old garden rose, known as Paul’s Scarlet Climber is a once-blooming rose, the other roses she purchased are repeat-blooming or ever-blooming roses, meaning they bloom continuously throughout the rose growing seasons.
Within a couple of years or so, Carrie was enraptured with roses and had accumulated 18 in her urban garden. The more she began developing her urban rose garden within the limits of her small patch of real estate located within the City of York, PA, the more she could connect spiritual life lessons she had learned in her “roaring twenties” and “enlightening thirties” to the lessons she was learning about rose gardening. As a means to share with others her love of roses and her love for God, she penned two inspirational books designed to share informative rose gardening tips with a spiritual parallel.
Since then, Carrie sold her city home for a condominium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Now, she is busy researching and adopting new roses for her balcony at the beach!
The overall purpose of the Ever-Blooming book, blog, and radio series is to inspire others to keep blooming despite the adversities they may face, despite life’s prickles, and during the good, the bad, and the bugly! May Carrie’s inspirational words nurture both your soul and your garden as you too choose to be “ever-blooming”.
