We got to the rose garden around noontime and it was extremely hot, the sun was really beating down on me. Last year I missed the roses and I’m glad that everything is still in bloom this year.
Roses are ancient symbols of love and beauty. The word ‘Rose’ means pink or red in a variety of languages such as Romance languages, Greek and Polish. I had the hardest time finding the right song for this video and while I was searching through my CD collection, I found Enigma song, “Smell of Desire” that seems to work well here.
There are many different varieties at Biltmore Rose garden and seeing these made me think of the time that I used to raise fragrance roses. I absolutely love them, but hate the Japanese beetles more, they would make a feast out of my roses and I ended up chopping them down by mid June. It’s nice to see the roses here looking so healthy.
