July Rose for Verena

In memory of Verena... she will be very much missed. I talked with her only a little, but she struck me as a kind lady with a love for the best things in life.

Among other things, she loved bright colours and flowers. I was going to make her a blue abstract, but then realized I had this photograph, taken in my garden the same day she passed away. In Photoshop Elements I used gradients to bring a touch of the rainbow to the rose.

Such a lovely composition and tribute, Tootles! I'm sure that Verena would have loved it, as I do! The rainbow colours that you introduced is pure magical! I see the rose had a visitor as well... (bee in lower right corner) :) Saved + faved.
