Rambling Rose



Hello everyone, hopefully you are enjoying this beautiful weather we are having. No complaints from me! I know it has been a little windy and a little humid, but look at the other places in the world; East Coast, some on the West Coast and overseas. Honey child we are blessed, so stop complaining and enjoy.

We have some fantastic concerts going on all over Baltimore, as well as the counties in Maryland and most of them are free. The festivals are just unbelievable fun, entertaining, educational and so enjoyable. The best of the best musicians are performing at all of them.
