All We Need is a Smell-O-Vision App

Wow, smell-o-vision would be useful for this post, especially. Smells are so hard to describe, but yesterday LT and I were looking at a huge number of hyacinths and the air was thick with the fragrance. He said it smelled "syrup-y" which I thought was really accurate! These roses are beautiful, and of course your season is so far ahead of ours...lovely to see such blossoms in April!

These are absolutely breathtaking, Clariz! I, too, can at least imagine the fragrance! Exquisite! Hope your week is off to a great start!

OMgoodness....what the??? Spring "came" a month ago and this morning we had an inch of snow on the ground. This is western (rainy) Washington for goodness sake!

Thank you all for stopping to smell the roses.

Sandy, rejoice in your precipitation and soak it up while you can. While you're at it, scoop some up in a bucket to bring along when you move down here. It's been so long since we've had any moisture--I dreamed I could hear the sound of rain on the roof last night. Alas--it wasn't true.

Gorgeous! How much watering do you have to do to ensure such blooms? You must have tremendous commitment.

Linda, I soak the plants pretty well once a week. For some reason roses just love conditions here in southern New Mexico. They bloom constantly all summer, even in neglected yards. Because of our dry air, they never get mildew and we don't seem to have the rose pests found elsewhere.

I've planted mine just by the front porch so we get the full effect of the fragrance, and so they aren't at risk from any of the spraying that goes on in the surrounding pecan orchards.

You have ROSES!!! How is this possible? We won't have roses until mid June. What a gorgeous shot. And I could totally smell it. I don't need no stinkin' smell-o-vision.
