When I bought my house a few years ago, this poor rose bush was so pitiful. One of my friends was ready to cut it completely down when I screamed, "OH NO don''t do that!" She said, "Nancy it is dead." I told her I would revive it. I must have felt like I had suddenly grown a green thumb as I never was into plants, flowers, etc.
Here are a few flowers from that very bush. They remind me of the old-fashioned roses my Grandmother had. If you know the name please let me know
