Peppermint Roses

Blooming today in St. Mark's Church garden, 
         on Locust St between 16th and 17th Sts.


  1. Peppermint roses are new to me. Do they smell of peppermint? Or are they so called because they resemble bonbons? I had a cat once which ate raw carrots.

  2. So pleased to hear from you. I am a great fan of your blog.
    I called these Peppermint Roses because of the coloration, then discovered that was their name. A peppermint scented rose would be quite a novelty.

    Since revealing Tizzy's fondness for banana, I've learned about all sorts of unexpected cat treats.... carrots being the latest.
    (You ARE sure it was a cat and not just a rabbit with short ears...?) =^..^=
