Thanks Mum. It was a test for sure. Until the last 20 minutes I had given up all hope on it. :D

This is very nice Colin! Just think of what you could do if you did one every six months!

Beautiful! I love the glow that highlights each petal. And you did it so well, with the changing depth of each section of highlight...not an even line...so it describes the shaping of the petals perfectly.

Beautiful rose Colin I suppose the roses are getting ready to bloom out your way where we are still under the snow here in the east.

Thank you David. It will be a few weeks yet for the roses. The rhododendrons are pushing into bloom at the moment

Your rose is lovely Colin! It will look nice on the wall.
We are going into Winter here in NZ and lots of rain at the moment!

Thank you so much Vivien. Our roses are out now. It's been a pretty stunning spring - warm and drier than usual. I love this time of year.
