My roses were a bit of a disappointment in May and June when they are normally at their prettiest. I think it was mostly because we had such a late start getting a string of sunny days together.
Needless to say, I was a bit excited when I noticed the fresh flush of buds on the bushes as I puttered in the garden this past weekend.
I couldn't resist snipping a couple of them to bring inside and enjoy.
These big cabbage roses are some of my favorites and I can hardly wait to see the show they'll be putting on in the next few weeks.
I know fall is just around the corner but for now, I think I'll hold onto summer just a little longer.
I'm joining these garden parties...
