Pierre, You've seen it, too!

“the grace of Canary Bird.”

Late last week I was down in our species garden and had a chance to really look at the form of the roses.

In with the other (what I call) early yellow roses from China, Canary Bird stood out, leafless against the grassy fields off in the distance.

Such an un-rose-like form, but so well proportioned with such interesing style for a winter’s day.

And being one of the first roses to bring bloom into the garden in spring is an important attribute, as well.
