I always like driving past Winthrop Park because of these roses. Aren't they just gorgeous?

Yes they are!! I was so saddened when I heard the reports that the city may take away the rose gardens around town because of the cost of keeping them up....maybe they have changed their minds...

Lovely yellow scenery!

I'd go out of my way just to drive by there.

I like yellow roses. And most other flowers. We planted 36 yellowish petunias yesterday. What a job that was. This is a nice photograph.

They are, indeed, gorgeous. Thanks for showing us so much of what Tallahassee has to offer; I had no idea!

How perfectly lovely! No roses here yet--just leaves. How I envy you their bright fragrance!

Gorgeous picture!

The yellow roses of Florida, huh? Beautiful.

They are beautiful... healthy, too! Such shiny green leaves!

Glorious roses, like sunshine on stalks...but how can you already have full blown roses? We have 3" high green spikes! I like the perspective on this one with the rose admirer standing at the end!

Yes, indeed they are! You people down there in Florida have so many pretty things to see. We, also, have things like this up here in PA, but I don't think quite as much.

That rose admirer in the picture was actually checking a tag on one of the bushes to see what kind of roses they are. I think he was going to go see if he could find them at the plant nursery!

Yellow roses are my favorite rose. Beautiful photo, Lois... Thanks for the flowers and your visits too:)

Yes, they are!
(In the local 'Rosarium' there are still no roses. I have two flowers on my windowsill -- http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_2ybxjiD_qJU/SfsIRvUj4bI/AAAAAAAAGOA/_fA5_-XR6VE/s1600-h/2009_0501Gody0280.JPG)
