I have spent a fair amount of time grumping and fussing about the cold, rainy weather we have been having here in Northern California, but the sun is shining and it is beautiful today. My roses have never looked better. All this cool, drizzly weather suited them. Amazingly, I haven't seen any black spot yet. If you like roses, I want to share these photos from my garden.
So lovely. I love old garden roses because they actually have a scent. There is nothing more disappointing than putting your nose in a rose expecting that heady smell and....nothing. Flowers that have a scent do not last long as a cut flower so breeders are slowly breeding all scent out of modern roses. I enjoyed taking a few minutes to stop and really enjoy my garden. Now it's back to the sewing room.
