This is one of the roses from my garden, I have been growing roses for over 40 years. I have now started to Photograph them for the first time.
Take initial outside just after a shower of rain, but the background was not right so I brought it inside to photograph with the rain still on the petals.
This rose was released 12 years ago by the Red Cross.
It is a very deep velvet red.
