It's rose season in upstate New York.
I read yesterday that roses are the official flower of Father's Day. Red if your father is alive and white if he is no longer with us. It's strange, but I had an overwhelming urge to post pictures of roses yesterday. I'm glad that I did the post I did, though, because that means I was able to save some gorgeous roses for today.
The next couple of roses are from our local botanical gardens, Cutler Botanic Gardens in Binghamton. These roses didn't have name tags, so if you can guess them, please leave me a comment.
Yellow Rose of Texas. And how beautiful is that? So fragrant, too.
Tomorrow, as summer begins, also begins my weekly Summer feature - Summer Ramblings.
What is your favorite flower?
