Hi, Nick,

If you're interested in Paul Barden's articles, you can go to https://web.archive.org/web/20... , which is an archive of his old website. Also, in the Guide Resources on the left of the main page, many of Ralph Moore's articles are listed.

Enjoy!

Hi - that was suggested to me before by RoseBlush1 (this thread) and I do have that in my reference and "must read" file. Thank you so much for checking in!

I found these two invoices in a box of old papers in the attic this morning, so this accounts for the cultivar names of some of these miniature roses, and the date of 1998, which these were shipped to my father (now deceased). They were probably mailed to him in 4-inch pots.

So I was wrong about going to the nursery in person and buying them directly at the nursery. And the plants are 21 years old. I was not living here in 1998 so apparently my father potted these into larger (6-inch) pots and planned to sell them from his greenhouse plant sales which he was doing here at the time. Later on, I think I must have planted some of them in the beds which they are now located.

PP .... actually it is a PINK rose, but does not show the pink coloration unless it is grown in cool temperatures .... Smiling



This photo was taken much later than the photo above ... early November:



@MargieNY ... that's a beautiful photo !

@NickyNick ... Red Cascade, Green Ice and Mr. Bluebird are the only Ralph Moore roses shown on the invoice.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Thank you one and all for your posts. I found those 2 invoices in a box in the attic that I didn't know was even there until yesterday. The silverfish were eating away at the top layer of papers and various items, but they hadn't gotten to those yet. I also found another box right next to it containing old photographs dating back to 1918 of my grandmother's family - same thing - the silverfish had nearly consumed some old newspaper clippings which were loose at the very top of the box, but didn't even touch those old photo's - probably 50 of them in their original cardboard folders + a scrapbook which my grandmother had made of her family and relatives. She was 100% Norwegian ancestry (VIKING !) and those people really do look different than the typical Americans that you commonly see! So I'm going to scan the pages of that scrapbook, put it on a CD and give copies to family members.

Here is a scan of an old telephone book (1956) which was lying loose by itself on top of the attic insulation, just to show the destruction that silverfish can do (for those of you who do not know)!

Wow! My daughter would be horrified! Big Grin She's in musuem studies. I don't know if we get silverfish here. It's awesome that you can save these old pictures/materials. Hurray!

It was a "guiding spirit" from an ancestor that told me "come up to the attic and rescue me!"

I think it was this one:

Nick - I very much admire your photographs of roses for identification purposes. They are so well done. The neutral background enhances the colours, and the lighting is perfect. The ruler is the icing on the cake. They are works of art.

They are done on a Canon flatbed scanner at 600 dpi resolution. I've had a lot of practice in the past using this scanner for botanical specimens - thousands of scans since 2009 and still working perfectly well! The resolution will go as high as 1200 dpi, and I use that only for very small objects that will need to be enlarged a great deal. Much better than taking close-ups with a camera.
