Harvest fresh rose blossoms for this gorgeous summer beverage!
Garden roses are one of my favorite scents in the garden! Capture their magic in this refreshing summer lemonade. Be sure to gather fresh rose petal from a trusted source! Roses sold at garden centers might have something sprayed on them, so only gather from home-grown or wild sources that you know are safe. Wild roses are a great alternative to use in this lemonade!
