Rose de Mai Harvest

By now everyone must know that I love Rose Oil, and my favorite, aromatically, is the rare Rose de Mai. Rosa centifolia, grown and produced in Grasse.

Recently my friend who keeps us supplied sent photos of last year's harvest. (The harvest normally takes place during late April and early May. She tempted me with an invitation to come take part. Now THAT is temptation, indeed.)

More Photos:

And the roses, ready to be moved from the field to the processor:

All photos are property of Albert Vielle. I thank them for sharing! I am imagining what that field must smell like! Heaven?

These pictures are beautiful. I'd love to (someday) participate in a rose harvest. It's on my bucket list :D
