This looks like Mary Austin, a David Austin rose which has a very long bloom season.

This rose only blooms once a year around April to the end of May. Normally gone by Memorial day... does Mary Austin do that..... ?
Thanks for the reply

See if it has "moss" by the bottom of the buds; if so it could be Common Moss rose.

Could you describe how the rose bush grows? Such as tall and upright of lax and bending over. Does it sucker, have many thorns or get black spot? Is it very fragrant and how would you describe the colour such as pink or mauve pink.

Yes, it is a pinkish Mauve I believe... it is lax and bends over ... its a shrub type, that spreads out at the base and gets wilder and wilder.... it does have thorns... I can't remember if it has alot of thorns... it seems like it had quite a few on a stem. And it only bloomed once a year ... lasting about a month or maybe alittle longer... in the spring of the year... we lived in West Virginia.... not sure but think that was in zone 5 or 6.

I have been looking at the David Austin site... I found 3 roses that looks like it could be.... Duchesee d'Angouleme.......Queen of Denmark..... or La Ville de Bruxelles...
I think it might be Duchesee d'Angouleme.....

Thanks for the interest and help in my Mothers rose...

La Ville de Bruxelles is a very large, tall bush and the flower are a light rose pink and the Duchesse has blowsy flower of a blush pink. However, from the shape and colour of the flowers, I think it may be the Gallica, Belle de Crecy. Here is a picture of my Belle de Crecy.

My instant reaction to your two photographs was that it is Queen of Denmark. It depends on the foliage - can you remember what it was like? Q of D's is quite light and sort-of-ordinary, if you know what I mean, lots of it, soft rather than shiny, very healthy. I grow both Q of D and Ducjesse d'Angouleme, and could photograph them for identification if you are still wondering. I'm sure it's not Ville de Bruxelles - which is a sharper pink altogeether.
