Rosie's Rose Garden

I love roses - not only to paint them - I also love to grow them and the roses I love the most are the Old Roses - the vintage roses - Bourbons, Albas, Musks, Damasks, Portlands, Gallicas and Centifolias. The shapes, colours and scents of them in bloom is eye candy on a warm June day!

I also love the English Roses from David Austin and this one is a climbing James Galway rose - and what a lovely sight it is in full bloom! It is a miltitude of colours with a warmer centre paling to the edges, and has a lovely scent too. I love cutting roses and bringing them into the house!
