Re: Rose for valentines day

Thank you for the kind words, Palms. I really like flowers and the rose is my favorite. When I was younger, my wife asked if I would buy her a rose bush for our front yard. I bought 2 dozen rose bushes, each a different color. We had the prettiest front yard in the neighborhood.

Alas, we moved from that neighborhood almost 30 years ago and I never got around to putting a rose garden in our yard. Now I only have 5, and with my back problems, I can't even go out and work on them. At least I can look at them, though.

Gerry shame about the rose garden can you not get patio roses over there ? then they can go in pots so not so much bending down ?

Thanks Palms, that link now works.

Just out of interest, approximately how long does it take you to do each painting?
You seem to of mastered the technique

Since my wife and I have been retired (5 years now), we've been doing a lot of traveling and I don't have as much time as I would like to take care of a garden now. Maybe in the future when we have got the wanderlust out of our system I will consider a potted rose collection or even a raised rose garden. With either of those I should be able to do some maintenance with little effort. In the meantime I will continue to admire them and work on pictures, etc.
