Chinese rose flowering on balcony (From outside) 20th April 2020 002

Chinese rose flowering on balcony (From outside) 20th April 2020.

I call this a "Chinese rose" because it came from some seeds one of my brothers gave some years ago. The seeds came from China. This is the 2nd year it has flowered.
