When a bouquet of roses is delivered these days, there is no need to inhale appreciatively - for there will be no discernible scent. How will one stop and smell the roses if there is nothing to stimulate the olfactory? I embarked on a search for roses that do give off a lovely perfume and found the hybrid tea rose to be just what the Dr. ordered. Filling that prescription, however was quite the feat. I finally found what I was looking for!
Today, I cut my first fragrant bloom from the Firefighter variety of rose - I just had to share!
