Roses and petals_Staats-9986We’re in the height of rose season – their colors and scents abound.  We have a wonderful John Cabot climbing rose that blossoms out in profusion mid-June,  becoming engulfed in a riot of color.  I’ve had cuttings in almost every room of the house, and yet the bush itself remains full too.  The blooms hold for many days and then they drop their petals all around – a reminder of their beauty even as they move past their prime.
