It's spring in Kentucky and the first Saturday in May is all about the Run for the Roses! Who will wear the coveted Garland of Roses this year? A tradition that started in 1896 when the Derby winner was awarded a floral arrangement of white and pink roses. The red rose became the official flower of the Kentucky Derby in 1904.
Derby Pie, my favorite Kentucky Derby Tradition...well, except for a cool Mint Julep of course!
