Tis the last rose of summer, left blooming alone; all her lovely companions are faded and gone.
- Thomas Moore
For my 89 year old mother with love …
My mother was very ill in hospital when I was working on this image. She has since been discharged and is doing well. She is very touched by all your heartfelt wishes and asks me to thank you all very much.
