When Rose Season Hits... It's All Surrounding














Roses... beauty on a prickly stem... fragrance... delicacy... petals drifting in the breeze.
Roses have their way here.

Up on the bluff, St. Martins, NB

Your roses are gorgeous! The fragrance must be wonderful!

So beautiful and like Linda says the fragrance must be heady.

I very much like Roses not just for their beauty but the length of the growing season which can be almost ten months long here. Years ago I used to make a delicious wine from their petals which had a gentle fragrance and tasted like a liquid turkish delight.

wow Gwen - it looks so beautiful there! I'm behind here and now I have to see if you have posted photos of the other place u are working on.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Sandy, Thanks for stopping to smell the roses. We are still working on the old homestead project. I'll hopefully be posting about it soon

Gwen Buchanan said...

Nicola, much appreciated!!

Gorgeous. I wish I was a gardener.

Thanks, Gwen, it is ever so lovely everywhere there! I have been keeping a wild rose in a pot beneath my kitchen window for a long time now -- mostly because I haven't gotten this particular one into the ground, but also because I'd miss the woodsy scent and hearing the hum of the bees so up close and personal as I sit or stand at the windows. If it were up to me, I'd spread them everywhere again! Imagine? Wild rose honey? I do, but yet to keep my own bees... I guess I'd rather just be imagining it! LOL

Thanks for giving me the tip I ought to be visiting your blog this AM... ;-)

Gwen Buchanan said...

Wildside, the rosa rugosa variety are so hardy and easy care. They are like a gift. Thank you for visiting the bluff.

WILDSIDE said...

Also very tasty! (The hips...)

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Linda, Thank you!

I think I am suffering from De Javue ?

No I'm not,

This is the same blog post as before tell me I'm wrong Gwen :-)

Gwen Buchanan said...

We'll have to do something about that very soon Mel!!

George said...

Totally magnificent, Gwen! Such a nice relief from all the depressing political news.

Oh, Gwen, how lovely, to have these all around you! I've never had any luck with roses myself, though my dad had over 200 roses bushes when I was growing up. Glorious!
