R and C and I visited the Rose Garden at Thornden Park.
When we first came in, R was interested in the most fragrant blooms. We asked a volunteer who was pruning and she said sadly that she had lost her sense of smell 20 years ago, but there were always dead heads to take off. She continued her pruning. On this melancholy note, we explored what was left in early July of what comes into full glory in mid June, and were not disappointed.
