Despite the lyrics quoted below, in the language of flowers yellow roses symbolize friendship – hence the title of this work. By happenstance, yellow roses were my mother’s favorite flower and are the favorite of one of my Israeli nieces. (My favorite flower is the red rose [love], when presented to me by my husband.)

Do you think it’s unkind to suppose That the desert’s no home for a rose. Guess I’ll always wish I could know Things you never told me
Kimmie Rhodes – Windblown music played in the opening scene of the movie, The Yellow Rose
Well, the yellow rose of Texas is the only gal I love. Her eyes are even bluer than Texas skies above. Her heart’s as big as Texas and wherever I may go, I’ll remember her forever because I love her so.
The Yellow Rose of Texas in the version recorded by Elvis Presley
