    ***Update***

    That second bud is opening today. It's going to be almost sad to not have something special to watch as it develops.

    In these shots, it's really easy to see the color differences between the old and newer blooms. The older blooms are a very pale yellow now, as opposed to the deeper yellow of the new flower.

    And in the process of shooting these shots, I noticed something not so happy. I'm going to post in the trash bin forum, so please take a look and let me know what you think.

    ** Edit*** Wow.. now that it's been figured out, I can plainly see the problem (mealy bugs) in the third shot. How did I not notice that before?

    Bruce, I'm hoping I got all of them. Every once in awhile I see another of the beasties. Couldn't take it outside and do the Neem routine, because it's been kind of windy here. Maybe tomorrow.

    It's been a bad day!!

    I am so sorry.

    Could you spray them in the bath-tub? Since it is only one plant, it should not take too long and then you could run the shower to wash away to oil.

    I just saw and responded to the other thread. Good luck.

    Cheers,
    BD
