Up Close

My cup day rose has taken up residence on my kitchen table. It's slowly opening. 
I decided to have a close look at the colours. The rose is called "dutch gold". I can see various shades of yellow from deep gold through to a pale lemon. And there are touches of red-pink there too. The gold deepens to a warm orange and some of the petals look just as if I'd dropped a couple of grains of my red dye on a wet patch of fabric--lovely!

It is lovely! And I'm sorry I ended up with the same sort of picture today, but I didn't see yours until tonight.

That is a lovely rose - I think a Dutch Gold would look great in my garden! Love the Spring Fashion.
