Summer means roses

The Real Flower Company is a Hampshire company that produces scented roses for the luxury end of the flower market. Their bouquets are lovely, but not a price that I'd usually consider paying except for a Very Special occasion. However because they're in Hampshire they also come to the local Winchester Farmers' Market, with roses that I presume are spare or not quite up to standard. Which means you can get a bunch of a dozen or more roses for £7. They're usually around for three months in the summer, and I usually end up buying a bunch if I'm going to be around for the next week. The scent is gorgeous, and there is a variety of roses in the bunch so you can split them up into two or three vases. Here is a sample from the last market:
