Climbing roses are a bit more romantic than shrub roses, I believe. They grow so tall and then arch over fences or other shrubs if left untied. The buds and roses nod down lazily above you without any cares except to intoxicate you with perfume.
To me these yellow roses seem to say, "It's beautiful out," even if it's cloudy and overcast...Which it was when I photographed them. I'm finding I like yellow flowers more and more because they are always sunny. This spring has been a wet, cloudy one. Maybe that's why they are popular in cloudy England, too.
