I'm not much of a rose fan, but if there must be roses, let them be yellow.
I first noticed this shrub rose back in June. There are several of them behind my bank building. I smelled them before I saw them. Not only are they yellow, but they are an old-fashioned kind. Not exactly single roses, but not the hybrid tea roses that have come to almost define the word 'rose.' That gives me another reason to like them.
Here's another reason to find them attractive. They were still blooming today, in August. That's a long flowering season. In fact the close-up picture above was taken today. Sure, there were fewer blossoms now, but it was still very nice.
In other news: I worked on accounts, files and wrote a chapter in DMS Mistletoe.
