Roses at the end of Summer
Roses are Summer flowers and they have a first and then a second blooming cycle. These are about the last of the blooms. Many of the roses have already stopped blooming and are covered with "rose hips," or the fruit of the rose bush. I have not tried to eat one, but I know they are edible. They are very high in Vitamin A. I used to grow quite a few roses, but now we live in a condo and the landscaping is all provided by the association. We have been planting a few flowers, but I haven't gotten into the roses again yet.
