Rosa rugosa rubra in the Herb Garden
I went to the Herb Garden today looking for flowers because it's been....well, gloomy for the past few days. There were dozens of roses flowering well but the rain had destroyed or at least tarnished most of the flowers. Rosa rugosa is tough though; this flower took the weather in stride.
