The Joys of Scented Roses

One of the most enjoyable things about growing roses is to be able to pick their flowers-- heavenly scented flowers!!! I'm having a lot of fun playing with roses at the moment; and can you tell I really enjoy them? As autumn approaches, I'm sure I will have even more glorious blooms to enjoy. I keep putting my nose up to them, it's become a habit when I get near roses; I make sure there's no bees in them before I do that, I promise. Happy Monday to you, I wish you a joyous week. Take time to smell the roses...........

Oooooh, when, oh, when will we have "smell-a-vision"! I love fragrances, especially roses. So many of the grocery store variety have no fragrance at all. It's hard to find a rose to smell without growing your own.
Thanks for sharing the pictures, anyway. I keep closing my eyes and imagining the fragrance.
