Apologies for the dreadful photo!

Beautiful Fiona.. gorgeous colours.

Love it. Great colours Fiona.

I think this is very lively Fiona a lovely 'dancing' style you captured the essence :)

Lovely colours, Fiona.

Lovely and vibrant Fiona!

Super work, I'd love that varieties of roses just don't smell any more, do they! Love very emotive. Your aunt would be proud of you, Fiona!!

Always so much nicer when a painting has a story behind it.

Love the rose and love the story. The description of the scent was/is so evocative. I'm already recalling the memory of those heavy scents. It must look great, and WHAT a survivor. As others have said, the colours are striking. Lovely rose. Brian

That's gorgeous Fiona! So many colours which just seem to fit!

Many thanks everyone, it is one of my favourites mainly for the scent.

This is a beauty Fiona -& proof of your "green fingers"!!!

It’s been done how you feel about it Fiona. Stimulation colour.

Loose and vibrant Fiona.

Hello Fiona....this is beautiful, and the story behind it is very poignant.....I’m sure your Aunt would be very happy to know that you have treasured it in her memory. Thank you also fir your recent comment on my Lavender is much appreciated.

Very pretty Fiona. Lovely story too.

Ha ha....thank you Carol. It was actually it’s do or die Year this year. It looked so miserable after the cold winds of the winter that I thought it was dead. I was a bit upset to say the least. I took it right back to the ground, gave it a good few handfuls of feed and crossed my fingers! No one was more surprised than me when it started growing relieved. 😊

John I was very happy that it had come back....pure joy! Thank you. Many thanks Richard and Sarah. Chandra, thank you very much. It was lovely to see your posting, I hope you will be a more frequent visitor once again.

A4 watercolour and oil pastel. I do a painting of this rose most years in one form or another. I’ve had this rose bush for 26 years and it’s been dug up and replanted as I’ve moved house five times in that time. I don’t know how long my aunt had it for, before she passed away. The scent is something else.
