About a week ago I noticed that the rose bush in my garden is in bloom. The previous owners of the house told us that it is a very old bush and that the roses smell heavenly and I agree. :) I cut a few of the heads and dried the petals. I had a pack of baby-shower-favor-bags and used them for the dried petals. They still smell good and make lovely little gifts. Here are pictures of some of the roses, you can see the rest of them here.
