Bloom Thyme Friday: Bringing The Sunshine In

Yellow in the garden is sometimes controversial. I have had people tell me that they hate yellow in the garden! And some people love it.

I’ve heard that yellow floral arrangements symbolize new beginnings, happiness and friendship.

Yellow roses stand for joy and happiness, but most of all yellow roses mean friendship.

Last year I lost a wonderful friend and mentor who loved yellow roses. When I see yellow roses, I think of her. Her favorite was Lowell Thomas. Lowell Thomas is not hardy in my zone, but I grow other yellow roses, like Julia Child,  Gold Medal and Harison’s Yellow. When I see yellow roses, I think of her.

As for me, I love yellow in the garden–it “brings the sunshine in.”
