Let’s talk story
When I met The Gardener, I thought it was fantastic that he had a hobby. Our roses are in the front yard, so we get to share his love of flowers with the whole neighborhood. We love having fragrant roses to bring in the house. The fragrance changes during the year! My favorites are Rio Samba, Sterling Silver, and Fragrant Cloud.
