I still want a summer do over, if only for the roses. Mine are showing fatigue, they have given me their all this summer and now I think they are ready to take a rest, well deserved I have to say. I am impressed at how well they did in light of the drought conditions which has not let up at all. I love roses, mine are so fragrant, I love burying my nose in their soft petals, inhaling the candy like scent, the bees are huge fans. Outside of summer, I don’t think of roses, I’m not a big fan of cut roses, I find them lacking in fragrance, I’m more than happy to wait for my roses to wake up from their slumber.
