I don’t know the name of this rose,but it is a lovely soft yellow climbing rose and overflowing with blooms in June. I love yellows and oranges in summer with a lot of white and accents of blue. Isn’t nature perfect in its inspration?

Yesterday was cold and grey and it was unpleasant being outside, so a still life was my choice of duty. I felt much better after completion of the still life; Not sure whether it is was the fact that I painted, ot the bright yellow of the suflowers. Probably a good mix of both.

Today was sunny and warm and pleasant. No question. A plein air was on the the to-do-list. The garden is in a state of neglect with us working on the house and the cottage the last few months. I think the painting perfectly reflects the charotic character of my unkempt garden of late.
