Spring and Summer are my favorite times of the year and I think alot of it has to do with the flower, our roses in particular. Part of the reason they always bloom so nice right away is that we over winter them in a greenhouse in Anchorage. We get to enjoy them for the spring and summer months and then they are safely tucked away for the winter and voila when we pick them up at the end of May we have wonderful blossoms. Another plus of this is that if they happen to die in the hands of the greenhouse they replace the plant at no cost. While the majority of these beautiful blossoms have no fragrance we have a few that are wonderfully scented, the lavender color ones have the most beautiful color and scent and we have a light cream colored one that smells like lemons.
