Not one of the "smelliest" (or fragrant if you insist), but a nice one. They get absolutely covered with those blooms - I had them in the back yard in the containers while I was waiting for irrigation to go in. I cut them back before I put them in the ground, so hopefully in about 6 weeks they'll be covered again.

We tried growing roses a couple of times -- but darn cold winter killed them after a couple of years.

Dileep,
San Diego has to have one of the most interesting harbours in the world - so many things to see and such a variety. Great shots - they bring back many memories :-)

San Diego is a great place.

The first time we went there many years ago, we spent a week just touring around that area.

Also slipped a trip down to Tia Juana.
