The roses have been spectacular this year. This pink one blooms at the roadside and this year we noticed that we had not one, but three of them.
Look how cute those rosebuds are!
If you've still got some roses, try making some Rose Petal Jam.
Or harvest the petals when at full bloom and after the dew has dried off of them. Spread them out on paper and let them dry until they're crisp. Use for potpourri.
If you're in a humid climate like mine, then dry them until they're leathery, and combine them with some rock salt and dried orris root [powder or chopped]. That potpourri will last for 50 years or more.
