My wife & I located our house on the site of a homestead that goes back over 100 years. In the deal we got some old black walnuts, a huge cherry tree maybe 3 1/2' thick, a cedar about 60ft high, etc. While cleaning up some vines around one of the walnut trees, I came across a single, tiny shoot of a rose bush. It grew for a couple of years, and last year had its first blossoms, of which this is one.As a sidelight, the fellow who dug the hole for my tornado shelter, himself 81 years old, said he remembered the rosebush from when he played in the yard as a kid.
