Beautiful, yellow rose means joy and friendship, looks in wonderful condition. Wish mine could look like that. Do you know what variety it is Jeff?

Beautiful photo.....this is the kind of picture you get on expensive birthday cards in garden centres.

I'm sorry, I asked my father in law if he could remember what it was called and he could'nt. Its sadly ironic but he passed away yesterday evening peacefully at home just a few hours before this photo appeared on Wigan world.

The yellow rose is fine ,But the texture of the leaves makes the picture .

A beautiful picture and a very sad and moving tribute to your father-in-law. Our thoughts are with you.

Jeff, I agree with Jean you can almost smell it. I know he loved and spent lots of time in his garden. He would have been touched and proud with the picture. A very fitting tribute.
