Ana Godes writes: Angelita Ruaix is my grandmother and she was 94 years old on June 19, 2001. Until 1997 her roses were cared by my grandfather - who was a great roses fan - in their house garden in Barcelona, Spain. When he died and we left the house, I took the roses to Mr. Dot's son for "grafting" as I didn't want to lose my grandfather's effort and such a nice rose. Today, on my terrace, I enjoy them a lot.
