Gestures of fall bloom roses at Zilker Botanical Gardens.
Veteran's day was the day Mom passed away.
Since I used to go with Mom to botanical gardens I went to Zilker as a kind of memorial.
I went to the rose garden and was surprised to see a number of the roses in full fall bloom.
The smell of blooming roses in the air was heavenly.
I set up along a wall and enjoyed several hours of hanging out with the roses.
I did some layered abstract sketches and then the roses wanted me to draw them so I did.
