Eric and I have this 3 mile walk that we like to do. The best part is that there's a fantastic public rose garden right around the halfway point. We've been walking past it and inspecting the rose bushes for a few weeks now, in anticipation.
Obviously we were in luck this past weekend! There were many, many buds and we saw three roses that were a little bit ahead of the game. I wish you could smell these, because they were just heavenly.
