Saturday, April 26, 2008 Public Roses

The public rose garden maintained by the City of Beverly Hills at the northwest corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Maple Drive just before noon on a Saturday morning in April   bright sun and deep shadow, ninety-two in the shade and rising fast these will wilt and burn at the edges soon.  You have to catch them before they're blasted by the heat and all curled up.
