Hi, all,

Buds are finally appearing on some of the roses. I can’t wait to see “Fort Pella Purple” now that the cataracts are out, so I can see if it still shows that strong blue aura. Ultramontana and Persica also have buds, and the Albas feel like there are bud-bulges in them thar stems!

On another note, will anyone out there who has “Fa’s Marbled Moss” or any of its offspring please let me know how they’re doing? Trying to keep tabs on how it performs in different areas.

Buds! Yippee!
