Mystery Pink Double Rose

bstanw01(48069)June 11, 2009

I am wondering what this rose might be, or even a type of rose would be helpful. It is double pink that opens full to quite flat with yellow stamens showning through the petals. I saved it from my neighbors yard. The rose has been there since at least 1970. The house was built in 1920. It is not grafted, and when I dug it up, it came out of the ground in a few different "sticks" that I then planted and it has bloomed this spring. I thought it might be a Moss rose of some sort, as the buds appear to have prickles on them that look a little like moss. The foliage is a light green in colour. Please let me know if you need more pictures or more descriptions. Thanks!
