The name under each photo is a link which will take you to that rose's description page on Help Me Find.
Our first real taste of summer heat and humidity arrived a couple of days ago, following a cool day of rain and a line of storms. The rain loosened the soil enough for me to get out for the past two mornings and make progress in the war on weeds in the rose field. I go outside at about 7am, work for a couple of hours or so, then come inside to the air conditioning to get things done inside the house. I imagine this will be my consistent summer routine.
While I'm outside working, I'm surrounded by the summer roses ... and it makes me happy. Freeing the roses from the grips of their weedy captivity makes me even happier.
