If the older leaves are turning yellow but the new growth looks happy and healthy, it's nothing to worry about. You didn't mention whether or not you pruned your roses back in December or January. It's important to either prune or at least pull off the older leaves at that time. They can harbor insect or disease problems and removing them in the winter months will keep your rose bushes much healthier. Best wishes with your roses!
