19th January

I just cant believe this rose, that is still flowering this time of year, even though we have had some very cold, cold nights; it deserves a meddle; I picked it and bought it into the warm, where it opened in the warm.

The heart shaped petals( more a rose madder pink) form a full peonie type rose, and the exquisite pale pink petals open out to lilac, that always look to clean a shade, when I mix magents pink and ultramarine; so I always add a touch of neutral (never ever black).
