"Yon rose-buds in the morning dew"


Yon rose-buds in the morning-dew, How pure amang the leaves sae green!
Robert Burns

My daughter-in-law started this rose for us from a cutting.  She wrote about the origin of this pass-along plant and how much it has meant to her family in her blog "The Word More Beautiful."  It's a story many gardeners will relate to.  Click here to read it.

What a wonderful story! And what a fabulous idea to plant cuttings from the same rose each time you move, and a very apt name for the rose in these circumstances too.
