The Best Perfume in the World

If perhaps you were thinking about collecting rosebuds, now would be the time....say if you live in the Willamette Valley (or Bulgaria or any one of a number of places where the roses grow wild and native and lovely).....
You can dry them and string them and smell them and wear them and make potions and lotions and tap into the most ancient of perfumes.....  True pure rose....
Above photo is rosa glauca from my yard - this just an amazingly beautiful foliage plant ......I also love the rosa rugosa which give me big fat, fat buds for stringing.  But I think it is our native rosa nootka that gives the sweetest scent.
And should you like to put yourself into the rose collecting frame of mind,  here's a post from Chelsea Fuss at Frolic about the annual rose festival every June in Bulgaria.
