Every year, I eagerly await the opening of one of my favorite roses, Lady Bird, with its five-inch size blooms and fiery, coral-orange color. It is quite a showstopper.
This year was no different. In the spring, my rose blooms are typically larger because there are fewer pests around to feed on them.
Well, my rose did open, but to my surprise, was not as bold and beautiful as in the past. I decided to do some scouting to see if I could determine what or who the culprit was disturbing my plant.
