I See . . . Red Roses Too

Red Roses Too

Many roses today have little or no scent. I wish you could have smelled the sweet heady scent of this rose from last summer.

    Great photo!
    I agree. Many breeders are going for color, bloom amount, size or bloom etc, that the fragrance is left in the wind. . No pun intended! I do know of some that still smell and look great.

      Thank you 🙂 I chose this rose bush especially for its strong scent. With only one flower in bloom, I am hit by its lovely aroma whenever I open my door.

      Yes, it’s true. Though I must say I have enjoyed my floribunda rose bush, which has produced blooms right through winter, even though it has very little scent. This scented rose bush only gives me 2 or 3 blooms in summer. Which is why I have both of them 🙂
