Mellow yellow hearts in flowers

I love the yellow hearts of the flowers in my garden. While one or two of my Explorer Roses (above) were still looking halfway presentable, and my Mock Orange bush (below) was still in bloom, I dragged Dick and his camera outside to take some photos for me. I wish you could smell my mock orange. It is almost as beautiful as the perfume of a real orange blossom. Wonderful!

Very lovely photos, Kay! We have mock orange bushes in Hawaii, but they really look different. The flowers and leaves are more waxy. I wonder if we are not calling them by their right name.

Mock Orange reminds me of my mother. I wish I could smell it, too.

The rose is absolutely gorgeous! I do see several hearts in the petals too. Love the Mock Orange blossoms.
