    This rose is my last remaining Austin rose after three moves, the worst winter in recent memory as a newly transplanted rose, and the Bambi brigade.

    I hope she thrives in my new cottage garden -- in my mind's eye it is a cottage garden; in reality, it is a plant ghetto plunked in a mess of muddy clay.

    She is beautiful when she is happy and tougher than she looks!
