For me, a sudden abundance of roses is the signal that spring is turning into summer.
A old-fashioned rose grows in the Medieval Village section of St-Valery-sur-Sommes.
An English rose at Newstead Abbey just after the rain.
A rose tree in the UBC Rose Garden, Vancouver.
Roses on the wall of the farm cider seller in Normandy, France.
Fragrant red roses growing up a wall in Delft, Holland. (More on A very good day and then another.)
