I have several buds on Therese Bugnet that are much lighter than the normal buds. I don’t know if this is because they are from a sport or because the buds have been damaged by insects. I noticed that both of the lighter buds had some damage. I have to wait until more flowers bloom on this stem to see which it is.
I could not get my camera to focus on the lighter bud and I tried many times, so it is fussy and I apologize for that.
Here is the link for the normal bud:
