Think I am finally getting back in the grove. I have an inordinate number of works in progress. All in various stages. And I finally just completed this one! These roses grow on my friend Jeannie farm. They are well fertilized with well composted horse manure. The roses are spectacular because of it!. I hunkered down for a few days... armed with opera rose, rose madder genuine, potters pink cerulean blue, and various shades of red in including scarlet and magenta.
