A Good Year for the Roses

Someone, years ago, was fond of planting rose bushes at NIH. They turn up alongside a variety of buildings, including 14G (counterclockwise from r), 22 and behind Bldg. 4, where they grow flush against brick walls, whose plain faces they transform (and in some instances ravish). If you look carefully, metal guide wires are strung along these walls, forming trellises along which the roses can grow. Sometimes overlooked, these plants add a subtle beauty to the campus.
