Winter rose

By oldgreyheron      
At the end of November the two climbing roses ("Compassion") over the archway to my greenhouse were still producing lovely scented blooms.

A good colour for the season I think!

Happy Christmas everyone! Mike

A beautiful but unusal shade - not quite pink - not quite red. Lovely.

Beautiful rose, lovely dense swirl in the centre, nicely not-quite-tidy petals at the edge. End of November? Teesside's warmer than I thought!

A lovely bloom for this time of the year with perfect green credentials - no air miles involved!

Have a wonderful Christmas,
Best wishes,

A beautiful Rose . My Compassion wasn't such a lovely deep colour . xxx

Mavis, your colour observation is interesting - I've only tweaked brightness, contrast and saturation, but perhaps more significant was the fact that this was a single rose we had picked, and which I photgraphed under artificial halogen light in the kitchen - that may have altered the colour somewhat - others may have something to add! My memory says that in the garden it is more subtle in colour.

Regards, Mike
