A welcome surprise

We received these miniature roses in a pot as a sweet welcome gift recently.  These have never done very well for me, and after the initial flowers faded and fell, I was sure we were traveling down a well known path.  You must also know this path. I can't be alone.  It is one grocery store and greenhouse raised plants frequently must travel, in the real world.  I planted it next to the porch steps and hoped for the best. While watering the garden last night what should I find?  Look! The first rose on its own, so small and brilliantly red. It is sweet like the family that gifted it.
