I truly enjoy fresh flowers, but when it comes to roses I can't help wanting to enjoy their scent throughout the year which is why I harvest some to dry. I'll collect some petals off of these beauties,
or I'll collect the buds from some wild roses.
Not only are they lovely to look at, but the soft rose scent makes them perfect for potpourri or for other crafts. Go here to see what I made using rosebuds and petals.
