The roses are outshining themselves! The Mr. Lincoln (deep red) roses have just started blooming and have a really strong smell…must be all the rain :-)
The Perfumed Delight (pink) roses, are covered in buds and will be in full bloom in a couple of days. They are my favorites for the smell. YUM. The climbing Peace roses are covered in big yellow, showy blooms.
I was never very fond of roses, but in the last 6 or 7 years, I find them most appealing and wonder how I could ever have been so blaise about them. We need to find an area in our yard and just plant a rose garden! Maybe NEXT year.
