A most beautiful painting of her in her youth
Born on the 21 April 1926--- Here as a baby , you can see she was born to be a Queen. And is always ready for a wave and a smile.
A great equestrian and horse lover. She has many horses in her stables
Her Wedding day.. She looks radiant..

Still looking beautiful and elegant. She is 85 Today.

So I continued my morning. This is my second vase of cut roses from my garden. They are just starting to bloom in profussion.. I have found the secret. They love "food" they thrive on it.
A few water colour flowers I painted
I do not know the names of the roses in my Rose garden. Here in Portugal the nursery just set them out for you to choose from. I do read up now and again about their names.. but to me they are all beautiful. This yellow rose is pink as a bud.
A water colour of the rose in the little milk jug.. I painted it a while back. But the rose bush is the same.
I painted these two red roses for a very good friend of mine "oils"
Well dear blogging friends. My roses might not be as magnificent as Queen ll.. but for me I am over the moon at seeing so many buttons and blooms appearing.
