EACH ROSE IS UNIQUE AND ABSOLUTELY EXQUISITE AND, AS THE POET MATISSE SAID OF HIS MUSE, IT IS “EACH TIME NEITHER EXACTLY THE SAME, NOR ENTIRELY DIFFERENT.”
THE RED INTUITION ROSE WAS FIRST BRED IN FRANCE BY THE HOUSE OF DELBARD IN THE SPRING OF 1999. IT IS A DESCENDANT OF “THE PAINTER’S ROSE.”

I also love the one below with the little heart on the stem.

There seem to be stripes of a slightly different red, or maybe that is just the lighting...
I like the heater as well as the rose!

That rose is marked almost like some tulips I've seen. Fascinating!

PAINT MY DAY RED!

A seeker of scarlet, they say,
Is likely to savor the day
If painted in red
Or ruby—instead
Of shades of monotonous grey!

The flower is budding and it grows to our delight. The rose is to open soon, and we adore the flower, we feel as if the new life of Spring is about to appear. A wonderful capture!
