MtLawleyShire: Other People’s Gardens – Yellow Roses

Yellow Roses, and apricot and indeterminate – mixed reds and yellows, orangey, pinkish-yellow – all of those.  It’s the last roses post.

I’ve read somewhere that the yellow rose signifies friendship, but in another source, it was treachery or jealousy.  I guess it depends what university you went to.  The white signifies purity, and the red rose we take as meaning love, but for the Romans, it was secrecy.

Whatever meaning we place on them, they’re beautiful and fragrant and as ephemeral as life.

Odd buds, tight and jealous of their colour:

Are these pink, but turned orange-gold by sunset?
