What is this?

In Portland, this Spring, we have had heavy rains and warmer temps. The roses, in our garden, look quite stressed. Some rose buds have the “balling” signs (thick, gluey outer coating stopping the rose from opening). This bud had the moss like growths popping out from the base of the frustrated petals. I have never seen this before. Warmer, drier weather has arrived for a bit, so I hope this remedies what ails them.

Bejeweled…

Looking slightly better than most of my rain battered roses. Sunshine and warmth arriving soon. Lots of pruning for now.

as the garden starts to pop here and there. With a week’s worth of warmer temps and sun breaks promised, things are looking up!
