SMELLING OF ROSES

Roses, who doesn’t like roses. They are all beautiful but I prefer the ones with a lovely smell. I have several of them in my garden so at the moment my garden smell’s of roses and it is so nice to sit outside in the garden and smell their perfume.

Here are a few pictures I took today and earlier this week.
