Initial post 9 JAN by Andrew from Dolton
June 1969. Would anyone like to try and guess what the pink rose might be? No need to guess who the adorable baby grew up to be.......

Wrong colour for Buff Beauty...
(Jay-Jay, that's another English-language joke. "In the buff" means naked.)

Why addressing me Margaret?
I'll remember your joke, Margaret, when taking a shower.... of rose-petals.

Addressing you because I've confused you before with a weak joke.

Alas, I have only a handful of Dutch words, and would never understand a joke with them.

I wondered about New Dawn for the pink rose, but can't see the detail well enough.

I was thinking that too Margaret but it isn't pale enough for 'New Dawn'. It could not have been older than 3 years old so is vigorous. What you can't see is that to the left, behind my mother, was a splendid hedge of 'Queen Elizabeth'.

I can't make out whether you're laughing or crying Andrew... You mum looks a nice lady, I remember those mini dresses.. very 60's... that's a nice one...

As for the rose... it has a rambler look about it, clusters of blooms hanging down.. of course back then a popular rose bought by so many was 'Albertine'.. unfortunately, what we got most often was 'Francois Juranville'...

The bloom colours reflect the pink on your Mum's dress...

'Albertine' is a very strong contender.

I'm definitely laughing, my mother was 25, half the age I am now.
