December Rose

Sometimes roses bloom in December, here in Virginia. That hasn't happened this year, at least in my knowledge, but here's a rose for the winter solstice anyway. I started with a simple curved line and drew the rest with old-fashioned french curve templates. I know it's not a totally accurate depiction of a flower, but you get the idea.

Some years my rosebush goes all winter, but not this year. We had a freeze and they all withered up. North Central Texas.

I like the French curve template. So useful. I ought to design a font with one for my code and scan it instead of trying to use that font creation software that won't let you just do it bit by bit.
