My roses are in full bloom and the fragrance of some varieties is intoxicating. As I wonder from plant to plant pruning and taking in the scent, I am overcome with tranquility.

Girls who belong to an era where a stroll through a romantic garden was a quiet, solitary activity that allowed these young maidens to secretly yearn for love as tenderly as the petals on a rose yearn for morning dew.
