Random Fact #2: I have a thing for roses! Inside, outside, upside down...my home is filled with roses with a scattering of other posies for good measure. Upholstery, lampshades, artwork, perfume bottles, needlepoint, linens, vases, candles.....all with my beloved roses! It's only fitting we have finally settled in The Rose City, Portland, Oregon!!
My favorite outdoor rose? Sunsprite. It's nearly trouble free and has the most delicious rose scent with a hint of lemon. I don't bother with roses that don't have a scent. I don't care how pretty a rose is, if it doesn't have a scent I don't want it in my garden!! Oh, if you could only breath in the scent of my garden on a warm summer evening!! Roses and gardenias and Angel's Trumpet......sigh. Simply heaven on earth.
Warmest rose filled bear hugs, Aleta
