Abraham Darby rose in the Japanese garden

This is an English rose bred by David Austin.  It is 90 deg as I shoot this and the bloom is opening as I sketch.  The colors are more saturated than usual probably because it is only the 2nd rose to open this season.  It has a really strong fragrance.  It is one of my favorite roses in my garden
