First Bloom on Dainty Bess

The first bloom is out on my Dainty Bess, sitting in a large pot outside the dining room window. I was given this as a struck cutting in 1987, by someone who had carried it around since 1939. Now I continue to carry it around and spread cuttings (which take very easily), wherever I go.

It is very special for me, as the 1939 cutting came from very close to where I grew up in a quite remote area. And it is a stunning rose. I have two more pots, ready to give away, and will then take more cuttings.
