Notice the Ephemeral: Roses

Roses are blooming across the boroughs of NYC. Last week I smelled the sweet fragrance of seaside roses (Rosa rugosa) in the dunes behind Plumb Beach.

You can find roses blooming along the greenest neighborhood blocks,  Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Rose Garden, and the New York Botanic Garden’s Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. Rose blooms should peak in the next week or so.

Here’s a reminder to notice the ephemeral. Now is the best time to linger and smell the roses.

Did you see any roses today? Let me know in the comments below.
