If we get a wet monsoon, the cliffroses bloom again. And right now they’re going nuts.
Cliffroses aren’t roses at all but they have a heavy sweet scent that reminds me of many years ago when I raised damask roses in Michigan. My wife liked scents but was allergic to pretty much everything, so I learned how to use damask roses to make rose water for her. Of course after I’d done that she decided she didn’t really like scents all that much, but that’s just the way the story goes when you’re me. I still like the flowers even if the scent is kind of cloying.
