Cluster of Buds

Cluster of Buds

It appears the central bud in a cluster will always open first.
Experts suggest removing it to give the others more room to open without flaws.
But I've never wanted my roses to look perfect and prefer to view them in their natural state.

The goal of life is living in agreement with nature.

Zeno, from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers
Greek philosopher (335 BC - 264 BC)

Thank you for your well wishes...I am still not up to speed but hopefully that will change soon.
