In years past, August has been relatively quiet in the garden, as the heat of summer puts a damper on things. Not this year! Many of the roses are covered with blooms; I've just posted forty (!) photos of roses taken over the last few days. It has turned out to be a really great rose year and all indications are that it's far from over. The bloomers include Double Delight, Heritage, Lagerfeld, Melody Parfumee, Pat Austin, Peace, Queen Elizabeth, Sunbright, Winchester Cathedral, and Zephirine Drouhin. This is a small part of the show being put on by Melody Parfumee.
