Beautiful, yellow rose means joy and friendship, looks in wonderful condition. Wish mine could look like that. Do you know what variety it is Jeff?


Comment by Garners girl on 25th May 2011 at 08:05
Beautiful photo.....this is the kind of picture you get on expensive birthday cards in garden centres.


Comment by jeff haydock on 25th May 2011 at 08:44
I'm sorry, I asked my father in law if he could remember what it was called and he could'nt. Its sadly ironic but he passed away yesterday evening peacefully at home just a few hours before this photo appeared on Wigan world.

Comment by Ron D on 25th May 2011 at 09:34
A nice picture. Well composed. A fitting tribute to your father in law. Cheers.


Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 25th May 2011 at 10:28
That is a beautiful rose..and a sad story about your Father In Law,I think you were meant to take this photo of his rose to remember him by.


Comment by Ron D on 25th May 2011 at 11:44
The yellow rose is fine ,But the texture of the leaves makes the picture .

Jeff, it really is a superb photo and a wonderful and fitting tribute to a wonderful man. George will be sadly missed by us all. A true gentleman

So sorry to hear about your father-in-law Jeff, condolences to all the family.

A beautiful picture and a very sad and moving tribute to your father-in-law. Our thoughts are with you.


Comment by Gillian on 26th May 2011 at 18:24
Jeff, I agree with Jean you can almost smell it. I know he loved and spent lots of time in his garden. He would have been touched and proud with the picture. A very fitting tribute.


Comment by Susan Davies on 27th May 2011 at 21:50
Lovely photo, and a lovely memory for Uncle George. Such a lovely man, always happy xxxx


Comment by Tom birch on 2nd June 2011 at 08:47
