Roses and Rogation Sunday

Sunday will be Rogation Sunday. For Rogation Sunday last year I noted:
For the Rogation Sunday service Fr. McGrath introduced us to a new (to us) custom. He noted that in England it's been a very old practice to conduct a procession, asking for God's blessings on the fields, gardens, and orchards as the procession passes through. We don't have fields or orchards but we do have gardens, so we processed by them. (Maybe we'll be blessed with fewer weeds...?)
The answer to the latter would seem to be "no," though we have been blessed by a proliferation of flowers of all sorts. Except roses; the deer keep eating them. Maybe we need ask for protection for the roses in this year's procession, if there is one.
