A climbing rose, with tiny yellow flowers, in our backyard. Seen in the late afternoon light.
Update: I think Jeane, in the comments below, is right about this being a Lady Banks' Rose. Here's the link that she tried to post in the comments: Pictures of Lady Banks Yellow Rose, Yellow Banksia 'Lutea' (Rosa banksiae)

What is the name of this yellow rose?

What is the name of this climbing yellow rose? My father-in-law has one in his back yard and he passed away in March so I can't ask him and I wish to obtain one like it. I've been looking for one and your photo is exactly the one he has.
If you would like, I'll be more than happy to share a photo I took of this beautiful climber that was growing over an old wagon wheel. I took the photo in March when his family came from Tennessee for his funeral.
Thank you for your assitance.

@Babs: I'm afraid I don't remember what the name of this rose is. I threw out a whole lot of labels from the nursery about six months ago, I think this may have been amongst them -- pretty silly really.

Go to the Dave's Garden site and look for 'Lady Banks' Rose' or rosa banksiae. I think that is the rose you are looking for.

@Jeane: Thanks. I think you're right. I've updated this post to reflect your new information.

OK. I didn't know what they were for a long time...a farmhouse along our HWY 33 has them climbing very high into some cypress trees...such a mellow yellow coloring. I finally found a plant in a local nursery. Quite lovely!
