Pink Ladies  free pdf Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Shaped like a miter's cap or delicately hued like the pearl-colored petticoats of a duchess, scented like honeyed almonds or nodding heavily in the wind, every old-fashioned rose possesses a unique character.

Well-bred ladies and gents such as the intrepid British tea thief Robert Fortune. On a secret mission in China, he clipped the rose that became known as 'Fortune's Double Yellow'.
