I know, you are probably saying to yourself, 'which one?' La Maculee, is the one I am referring to now...I just got it from Vintage today, and it is such a nice plant...It had 4 buds on it...2 with color, as they are partially open...and 2 tiny budlings...I nipped the 2 tiny ones and let the other 2 remain. Pictures are coming tomorrow.
A friend also had a rose that was delivered today. Am I bad...when I unwrapped her rose, a Tea, I thought to myself..."I sure hope this one isn't my rose!" There really is no comparison, between the 2. I am going to try to take a picture...

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. It's nice when they arrive in such good shape.

My order will be mailed to me next week. They delayed it because the plants were so small. I hope they grew and I hope they all survived.
