rose, peony, sage

I've been bowled over by all the great smells outside. I thought most of the fragrance was coming from white clover and honeysuckle, before I realized the sweetest scents were probably coming from this rose (Therese Bugnet) and an old-fashioned peony. I particularly appreciate the rose, because it's one I tried to move, without success, and what's blooming now grew from roots I left behind. The white flowers are blooming on long stalks of sage plants near the rose. This particular sage has enormous, grey-green leaves and didn't look worth keeping last year, but this year it is gorgeous. I think it's a biennial.
