This is the season for roses, when the ramblers burst into splendor, deep red, ivory, and candy pink.

Ramblers is just the right word. We put in a few bushes years ago, and they've certainly rambled. I can't count how many we have now. And they are all blooming. I tend to take closeups of flowers because they have a clarity I can't seem to achieve when I take photos of a larger group, but I'm going to show a couple anyway just to give you an idea of their "splendor."
