Wild Rose in China Pitcher

I do love those fat cabbage roses they are hybridizing now, but I have to admit my favorite rose is still the old fashioned wild rose - a single variety. They just look more nostalgic and old-fashioned to me. And they come in such soft, lovely colors. I love the way they crawl lazily over old fences. They are a perfect subject for watercolorists!
