It's Lovely When Things Work "Just Right"!

March 27, I posted about Schmidt's Smooth Yellow, the thornless, yellow polyantha Jackie Schmidt rescued from a 1930's cottage to be torn down in her town. I removed the cuttings from their two week wrap and planted them that date. 

 This is what greeted me when checking things this morning.

 This is a 16 oz. root ball from a foam cup.
 The buds are beginning to swell!
It's lovely when things work "just right"! The cuttings arrived March 13. They were potted March 27. Eight days later, a root!
