The next one up is "Banzai", which fits with your request for yellow roses Fleur.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Next in line is 'Blues'. Quite where the name came from, I'm not sure.

David I liked the first photo you posted, the yellow rose, but today's is really lovely. 
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Hi David.  Thank you for our daily rose.  Our rose bushes from Northen Greece have responded to the rainy days we had. It is surprising  how quickly they have come alive. Our Rosa damascena[/hi] have not got any leaves as yet. Other years they would have had roses perfuming the place.   Years ago I bought a rose that had 'speckled' petals.  It looked lovely but it has not flowered since then.  Maybe it will this year having had the water.  If so I shall proudly 'post' the photo of it.

We have had Ccile Brunner in England for over 20 years, excellent for cutting, not very thorny, and less blackspot-prone than many of our old roses. I think there's a climbing sport too.

Another pale pink rose today - I am sure you will find better pictures of flowers fresher than those in this photo. At least it gives an idea what the flower looks like. 'Centenaire de Lourdes'

So much for alphabetical order! This one slipped through the net and should have been before the last one. It is 'Cherry Bonica'.

David I looked up the chewjackbelt rose and I liked the variety very much. I think though the dark coloured ones are more beautiful.
