Artist's Description

Yellow Harison Pioneer Roses were planted by early American settlers, all along the Oregon Trail.
(2010.JUN.20)

Some of this variety grow in Cherry Creek, Nevada; one legend being that a school teacher first planted them here, in the mid-1800’s. There is no written documentation to confirm the verbal tradition. We do know for a certainty, that they were well-established in numerous yards here, when my grandparents arrived in the 1940’s.

An extremely hardy variety, the roses have survived through many decades of drought and neglect, and in wet years like this one has been, they bloom with a passion!

Composite image of two frames taken from the same position. The roses are growing behind the gate; however there is a “temporary structure” in the background. I have removed it, and brought the flowers closer to the wooden fence.
