Yellow Rose

(ROSA. CLOTH OF GOLD.) Infidelity.

"The rose is fragrant, but it fades in time."--DRYDEN.

Cut the petals from light lemon wax, colour them with deep yellow

towards the lower end, gradually shading off the same towards the upper

end of each petal. The first three sets of petals are placed on in

clusters of five, the others singly in rows of five. The foundation is

made similar to the damask rose, and the stamina show from the front of

the flower. Calyx and seed cup formed as usual.
