FOTD #5: Yellow Roses

Roses tickle me pink. This month, I’ve picked a theme of roses. Granted, it’s not the main season for roses, that would be April, in California. They are still nice here in Prescott. I like this challenge, even though I’m doing others, I’ll try not to intermingle them so much so you won’t have to plow through stories to see the flowers.

Bunches of Yellow Floribundas

I loved shooting up into the sun ad capturing interesting shadows on several of these photos.
Look up with your camera only!
I cropped this one quite a bit, but it could use even more cropping in my opinion.
I saved the best for last including just a little bug for Cee. 🙂

  1. lovely yellow roses!
    i have six multi colored roses on a vase – bought them for son’s gf and she left them here for me to keep (they were talking a short trip)
    anyhow – did you plant your roses or were they there when you moved in?

    • The garden belongs to the City of Woodlake. However, for many years a the small farm advisor for UC Davis, who lives in Woodlake designed, planted and ran the entire 14 acres at the Woodlake Botanical Gardens. After a short disagreement about the cost of maintenance of the garden. the professor stopped working in the rose garden. The City killed about half the roses and couldn’t maintain them, so Kiwanis stepped in and devised a plan for their long-time care. It is not jointly maintained by several non-profit groups. The City helps with materials, and it gets more care than if two or three guys spent about an hour a week on it. It’s not perfect, but it’s working.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
