The Story Behind the Picture

Roses are quintessentially English. When I moved into my first house, the front garden was full of standard roses and rose bushes. The fragrance could be heady on hot days.

When we moved to our current house, we restructured our garden. As part of that we had to remove a large rambling rose. It used to climb over a wooden arbour that had since rotted away. The rose was woody and weak - it had to go. Despite this, we decided that we should purchase some shrub roses for the new borders and this particular plant was one of the most successful. I can't remember it's name, but it is absolutely beautiful.

Colour Palette

Orange / Green / Brown

The colour palette, with hex and RGB codes, has been provided for reference. This has also been matched to the nearest tones in a few of my favourite yarns: Stylecraft Special DK, Paintbox DK, Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Super Saver.

Please note that the yarn colours shown are an approximation of the true shades. It is impossible to find the specific colour codes for yarn, as it tends to be a subtle mix of colour. The suggested colour palettes, therefore, use the picture for inspiration and are just for fun. They may just give you some ideas on colour combinations, but please go to your local yarn shop and check out the true colours before purchasing. As with all technical things, the colours may vary according to your screen settings.
