Roses were a big thing at the Herbal Affair in Sand Springs, Oklahoma this year. Their 26th year marked the most vendors selling roses I've ever seen. Finally, the rose has caught on as an herb! Unfortunately none of the rose vendors were selling my How to Eat a Rose book, but I did my part at our booth.
This fragrant red and white rose is in bloom in our garden this week. It's tasty and an old-fashioned shrub rose.
