A rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.
Here in North Carolina we’ve had some really warm Summer days with the accompanying humidity. And have to say I’m not a big fan of that. But…. this heat, I think, makes my roses smell even better. Deeper and longer. Just walking by them and to get a sniff. Not even stopping, just passing through….. So enjoyable! Unfortunately the high temperature make them bloom a lot shorter too, so whenever I see a nice copy I cut it and take it inside, where the air conditioning keeps us all cool. And I get to enjoy it a bit longer.
