First 2009 Seedling sprouts!

The first of the 800+ seeds in the greenhouse sprouted today. This one is Fa's Marbled Moss x Song of the Stars. I was particularly eager to get this cross, as these two roses appear to display two different types of spotting. FMM has splotchy spots, irregularly placed, ovoid and with dark centers that are part of the structure of the petal itself. 'Song of the Stars' shows circular, smaller, evenly spaced dots which look as if they are dots in the purple top-layer of the petals only. I hope a great many of the seeds from these hips will sprout, I can't wait to see what I get!
