This is a photograph of one of the many roses that I grow in my garden. This rose is called Scent_Sation and it’s a hybrid tea. It doesn’t really have much scent, but what it lacks in scent it makes up for in prolific blooms.
Once this baby gets going sometime in June each year it’s pretty much in a constant state of bloom until October or November. I believe that this past year it still had blooms on it into December since our winter was so warm. Of course those blooms weren’t doing much and looked kind of raggy but it was interesting to see.
Now, after the recent snow and ice storm, all of the roses and other plants growing in my garden are covered in a heavy layer of snow. The weather is warming though and I’m sure that many of the plants will peek out from under their snowy cover soon.
