A fragrant portrait of a rosier time


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Joan Hemm, of Mukilteo, a member of the historical-costuming club Somewhere in Time, Unlimited, admires a hedge of fragrant roses at the Antique Rose Farm in Snohomish on Sunday. The farm held its 19th annual Antique Rose Festival last weekend, with an Old Garden Rose Show by Heritage Roses Northwest, featuring more than 200 kinds of roses cultivated before 1867. The Antique Rose Farm is open for rose sales daily Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
