The regrown rose

There was originally a rosebush at the corner of the house. It was a bit scraggly because it was planted next to the downspout and the ground was always soggy, but it tried really hard to be pretty. 
In an attempt to move it to a better spot, the roots were broke into pieces when Hubby dug it up. I couldn't let it end like that, so I took 4 pieces of it and stuck them in the ground in hopes that something would come of them. 
Well, one did and it bloomed this week!
