I've Got The Mustard. So, Who's Bringing The Hot Dog?

One of my favorite roses.... Honey Dijon. Posted by Picasa

"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses." ~ Abraham Lincoln
Honey Dijon, yes, really... this creamy rose looks like a swirl of honey mustard whipped up into a perfect parfait. Yes, this is it's real name and yes, it really is this color. As it opens and ages the edges begin to tinge a light coral, but for most of its days the rose is the definition of honey mustard. Now, if it only had the fragrance of honey mustard... wouldn't that be a shock and a delight!

So for my Mellow Yellow Monday, here is the Honey Dijon... now, who's bringing the hot dogs?

Lord, that IS gorgeous!! I haven't sen that variety at the wholesaler's, so I gues it isn't being cultivated by the rose growers for the florist trade. More's the pity!
