Surprise! Another Rose Sports

I looked, and looked again.  How'd that yellow flower get there, between mango-orange 'Easy Does It' and black-red 'Barcelona?
Compare the flower bud on the left side of the photo with the flower bud on the right side:

Quite a surprise.  I traced the yellow-flowered stem down, it's firmly connected to 'Easy Does It', which is supposed to look like this:

Looking at the aberrant flower's egg-yolk color, and considering the name of the original, naturally the name 'Over Easy' comes to mind.  What a surprise!

Speaking of surprises, I'm going to a garden blogger thingy in San Francisco tomorrow.  Some house/puppy/koi sitters will be here taking care of things.  There will be a flower-a-day post for the next few days.  If I manage anything more, I'll be--surprised. 


  1. Looks a bit like "Livin Easy'. I'm looking forward to meeting you in SF, Hoover!

  2. I love the colour of your easy does it, will you keep the yellow one?

    1. Yes, I will try to root it. It would one-of-a-kind!

  3. I would love to be in SF also.
