This lovely rose garden leads to my studio through those french doors.
In summer i paint with them open and we enjoy cups of tea on the porch looking at these beautiful roses.
This lovely garden is called Elsies garden in memory of our beautiful Mum.
The little statue in the pic is very old, we just paint him white. My Mum asked me to call him Philip and I did.
I dont know if Jude knows that!
Soon the roses will all need to be pruned right back but at least i will be able to get in and weed then. Its a prickly business with roses.
I love this garden, it brings me such pleasure and the perfume is divine.
