Happy 100th, Julia

Life itself is the proper binge.
– Julia Child

Today is the centennial of Julia Child’s birth.

The Julia Child rose  (appropriately butter-gold ) was bred by Tom Carruth in 2004.  It was personally chosen by Child to bear her name.  Weeks Roses introduced it to the public in 2006, and it was chosen as one of that year’s AARS winners.

The Julia Child kitchen exhibit will re-open today at the Smithsonian’s Museum of American History.  It has been closed since January for a move to another part of the museum.
