Outdoor Flower Series Week 4

Continuing my Outdoor Flower Series inspired by the book "The Meaning of Flowers" by Gretchen Scoble and Ann Field...  This week's flower.... or I should say FLOWERS... Lady Banks Roses (Rosa Banksiae)... named after Lady Banks, the wife of the eminent botanist Sir Joseph Banks. All Lady Banks' roses are said to smell of violets to varying degrees. I don't think mine smell like anything.
