The first rose

When I took this shot on Mother's Day, the 
roses were not yet blooming at the Brooklyn Botanic—
except for these primula x rosa  (also called 

primroses, from the latin for "first rose"), one of 1,200
different kinds in the Cranford Rose Garden (one of
the largest collections of rose cultivars in North America).

[Linking back to Monday Mellow Yellows,
Mandarin Orange Monday, and Macro Monday.]

  4. Yellow rose, my first thought was that old song "The Yellow Rose of Texas". Nice capture of a bee.
