the smell of roses

Usually, when there's a smell I can't locate wafting around it's not a good one, but last night I was in bed and smelled something like a mixture of roses and nag champa - I could not find where it was coming from. I remember this happening on one other occasion many years ago.

Today when I was tending the garden I looked up at my big pink rosebush, the blooms passed for the season some time ago and there are some spent blossoms that need to be dead headed. Out of one of the dead blossoms was a new blossom blooming from the center. I am not a rose expert, but my understanding is that a hip will form where the bloom dies. This "re-blooming" may happen from time to time, but it's new to me.
