Pick us another place in the world where the roses take over in summer, as they do here on Nantucket. You would think they owned the houses. We are glad to surrender them.
The very ridgepoles flame with red. Pink climbs the shingles and clapboards. Trellises are masses of big, bright blooms. Fences are hidden by beauty.
There must be something about the air, our winds and our rains and our soil. Other places grow roses - Nantucket belongs to the roses when the June warmth takes over.
