Sweetheart Rose on Flaunt your Flowers Friday.

This is the Sweetheart Rose.
It came from a cutting that my neighbor gave me before we moved across town about 5 years ago.
It's tiny, about the size of a finger or thumb.  But perfect.
Sweetheart Rose bush.  
My neighbor had the rose growing in her yard for about twenty years.  She said it came from a cutting from her Mothers rose bush.

That's my favorite kind of rose.   One that came from a friends own rose bush.

This is my Flaunt your Flowers Friday from Tootsie.
Visit her for lots of pretty Flaunted Flowers!


  1. How Pretty and Perfect those little Roses are.So pretty! Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend!

  2. I Have always wanted rosebushes, but have been afraid of them. Those who know tell me that they are as much work as kids.

    I hope to get a few (rosebushes, not kids) in the near future.

  3. What a gorgeous little rose ... and a great story about where it came from. Gardeners passing onto gardeners ... spreads a lot of beautiful blooms.

  4. Very delicate looking. Pass a long plants are indeed the best!

  5. Such a tiny rose but big on beauty. The plants that come from friends and family are the best.

  6. I'll have to learn how to do cuttings from roses. I have bush roses and they do great with little or no care. Just think what they'd do if I watered them once in a while.

  7. I love this! How did you do the cutting - I have always wanted to do that. Thanks for sharing, Paula in Idaho

  8. If you choose easy care (often antique) roses they can be very easy to grow. I didn't do the cutting, my neighbor did. It would be a wonderful educational post from an experienced grower. But that would not be me. Maybe someday I will be!

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on my roses.
