B&W Challenge #38 - The Love of my Life

Oh this is definitely the LOVE OF MY LIFE!!! The magnificent "Abracadabra" rose which was my Mum's favourite rose and which we now have at our house after she passed away. It's far more glorious in colour however it does come up quite nicely in B&W. This rose blooms like crazy in Summer! So many roses.....it's Mum saying hello :)

I have an Abracadabra rose too - and two other painted varieties - they're fabulous!
This looks great in b&w!

I am not usually a fan of flowers in black and white, but you have done such a good job here I am slowly changing my opinion.
