Mum's bright rose by Cherrill

Mum's bright rose

Before she died 3 years ago, my Mum struggled with failing eyesight and increasing dementia. I learned that with dementia, colour vision is affected with red tones being the last to fade. Our last visit to a garden centre together she chose this rose bush as she liked the colour. I realised later it was the only colour she could see.
It breaks my heart even to post this commentary but the rose shines bright in my garden with happier memories.
I shall put this in my 52 blooms rose week. (taken 22/6/18)
Aw. What a lovely memory of your mum though. I understand how difficult it must have been for you to post the image, but it's beautiful.
