This rose is the first plant I ever planted in that garden, some 23 years ago. I don't remember its real name, but it has become Emilie's rose, probably because Emilie had helped choose it. (Emilie is my eldest daughter, she is now 25.). This is a strong plant, it has survived two transplantations and is still happy to bloom. The flowers are large and the scent is very nice.

Emily´s rose seems to be perfect, it looks perfect on the photo, anyway!

Today I see your blog for the first time. I think all gardeners have one rose with a very special memory. In my garden it's not Emily's rose, it's Mama's rose.
Wish you a nice week Wurzerl

Beautiful rose. When having a plant that long, it becomes part of the family.

Wow! I wonder what the rose is. The bloom reminds me a little of Yves Piaget but the leaf color is rather light.

Very dainty little pink rose...I love it. It has sentimental value and that makes it extra special, for sure!

Thank you all!
Yes, this rose has some sentimental value, although Emilie does not remember her role in it :-)
