  1. Sigh - I NEEDED that on yet another rainy NON spring day here in Ky.

  2. You take amazing pictures! I love your blog too. I'm here from Kim's party and I'm your newest follower!

  3. Lady Banks yellow roses - a treat for the soul. I am going to see if they will grow in my area. I can't believe the early blooming. Thank you.
    - Joy

  4. Oh my Sherry that is gorgeous! I might order one of those! So pretty and we have lots of sun in our front yard. I'm going to read more about it. It's still rainy here but at least I am feeling better. hugs, Linda

  5. Your roses are beautiful. I think I have a pink one of these. It is impossible to kill and when we cut it down to the dirt it grows back this tall in almost a summer!

  6. Wow! We aren't even close to that yet! Thanks for sharing- yellow roses are my favorite.
    Hugs- Tete

  7. It looks like ruffles...and what a beautiful delicate color! Happy Spring! ♥

  8. Just beautiful...I always loved the lady banks...Tiff

  9. She is SO beautiful.
    Makes me kind of homesick. Mom has a HUGE one in her yard.
    Last year we went on a getaway the first weekend of April for my birthday, and the B&B owner was having a little "conversation" early one morning with her Lady Banks rose because she WASN'T blooming yet! :)
    Happy spring!

  10. Your rose is so pretty! Very dainty and lacy. Do you have to prune it?

  11. You had me at thornless. I didn't know there was such a variety of roses. Your bush is beautiful! Great photos, Sherry! :)

  12. Such a beautiful pick-me-up on such a dreary day! Thanks so much for sharing!


  13. Those are just so beautiful and lacy looking, love them!

    Happy I found your blog!


  14. That is truly the most GORGEOUS Rose bush "EVER". I LOVE that color. It seems like a soft yellow that would be gorgeous with ANYTHING, and look how spectacular it is with the green!!! Love it, Love it!!! Thank you for sharing with us.
    Hugs to you,

  15. Just gorgeous, I've not seen these before. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous flowers, and for linking up with VIF!

  16. I love Lady Banks! I have one I purchased two years ago, but it's never bloomed for me. I have had to cut it back or it would have climbed to the moon by now!
