|Chives in front of Lemon Balm and New Roses|
I planted new roses this year behind the Lemon Balm. I'm amazed at how quickly they're taking off.
The chive has a faint oniony scent and can be used in salad and cooking. The lemon balm has a nice lemon scent and can be used in tea and has a calming sensation. I try to choose the roses that have the strongest fragrance for potpourri and other crafts.
This is one of my favorite spots in the garden to keep an eye on this time of year.
