gloire-de-dijon

My friend Nan’s daughter Rose Anna lives up to her name, winning prizes at rose competitions. Her latest was for a Gloire de Dijon. I love the mustard, and the city of Dijon on the Cote d’Or in Burgundy is ancient and stately. But I had never heard of the rose. Its crumpled layers are breathtaking, glory indeed.
