Curious Rose

('cause it rhymes with "Furious Rose"....I suppose)

This bizarre rose bloomed in the garden just a few days ago. Bizarre because the main stem has two smaller stems branching from it, one right above the other, and each supporting yet another bud:

I was hoping the two smaller buds would open soon as well, so all three would be in bloom. But they seem to be taking their time. I only hope the larger flower holds itself together long enough to make that possible.
