Well it's officially the 4th already but Zuzu has been sidelined by her painful right arm and hand so typing anything of length is out for now. I have been busy with family company and other projects so totally spaced it with starting a new thread.


This is Spring Fever, which I am sure all of us have! nodding

zuzu - I had to take an early retirement due to pain in my hands. My problem originated in my neck and is much better now but my hands still burn at times. I hope your condition improves!

Calif Sue - I've never heard of Spring Fever but it's beautiful! I looked it up on HMF. Did you get it from J&P? It seems to be a rare rose from Japan!

I was checking out my roses this morning and found that Black Bacarra had some pretty dew drops on its leaves. I took a few photos then altered the color with iPhoto software. It's not everyone's cup of tea but I had fun with it.

@AnnKNCalif, if you enlarge that photo, the caption says it was taken at a nursery, not sure which one as that was 11+ years ago. Shrug!

Ann, I think the "dew drops" are actually the result of guttation. I think it's a fascinating phenom so here's a link. I hope you find it interesting! Smiling https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wik...

Vaporvac - that was really interesting. Within that article, is this about bees:

Girolami et al. (2005) found that guttation drops from corn plants germinated from neonicotinoid-coated seeds could contain amounts of insecticide consistently higher than 10 mg/l, and up to 200 mg/l for the neonicotinoid imidacloprid. Concentrations this high are near those of active ingredients applied in field sprays for pest control and sometimes even higher. It was found that when bees consume guttation drops collected from plants grown from neonicotinoid-coated seeds, they die within a few minutes.[2] This phenomenon may be a factor in bee deaths and, consequently, colony collapse disorder.

vapor - Thank you so much for letting me know about guttation! I'm a bit of a science nut so learning about this was great. I think I might have been introduced to this process long ago but I don't recall the name guttation.

Many thanks!

Hey all we're back. All of our Roses are starting get budlets all over them already. Here in zone 6a-6bish. We have a lot of second year DA's coming up this year. First year they really exploded. And we have some late fall planted roses that will be first bloom this year, that we are looking forward too. And we are going to plant quite a few new bare roots this year. As well as some new container roses. It's been really decent weather lately. Its 61° today. But we are suppose to get a wintery mix tomorrow. Hopefully the last one. We need to prune some of our roses for this year. Looking forward to seeing everyones pictures this year.

I have a new bud from my newly planted rose La Reine, it's exciting. Can't wait to see what it looks like. But I pinched the Star of Republic rose, it didn't look good, that way I put the energy back to the plant. That's my rationale, the other one is I can't stand the look of it. Lol

Sunbright rose pictures, this is one of my great buy from Home Depot, the plant looks so healthy. Bright and cheerful hybrid tea.

Walking on Sunshine, I like the lite yellow.

Mme Isaac Periere is finally open, kind of limping, not as a hybrid tea.

I try to grow everything, sometime not successful.

Great start for March! Love Spring Fever!

Ann, your "dew drops" are beautiful!

Vaporvac, I learned something new today!

Congrats, Lynnez, your first rose is a beauty!

Welcome back, Weluvroses!

Beautiful, Socal! Love that Violet's Pride!

I have little red nubs starting all over my roses here but way too soon to go out and prune. You can't really stand on the ground right now because it's so soft and you sink right in, lol. Besides the bitter cold wind out of the Northeast today was nasty!
