very pretty! Is that at your house?
My heirloom rosebushes are loaded with blooms and since they're all right under the window, it fills the room with their heavenly, old-fashioned scent. Love it!! I'm not a huge summer lover, but I do love all the beautiful flowers. Glad you're able to enjoy them too!
Erin, yep, the wild roses are blooming right now.Becky, I don't love summer, either! Well, I take that back: it's the heat & the bugs I hate. Were it not for those, I LOVE summer! ;)I'm SO envious of your heirloom rosebushes! Wow, wow, wow. I've never had much luck with roses here (domestic), but this year I caved and bought a climbing rose with blooms of that traditional buttercup yellow. I sure hope it lives!!
Hi again CM Weslie!My rosebushes were my grandma's. They were very old when she died and I took three of them for my yard. They're so easy-tons of blooms every year and I don't fuss over them at all. They smell heavenly-like roses are supposed to smell. The new hybrid roses really don't smell very "rosy".I too hate heat and bugs-we have lots of flys because of our horses. I also hate humidity. I've always said if it could be forever October I'd be a happy camper!
