I am trying to log into my original account. My user name is LadyBren. I have tried various passwords to no avail. I have several roses registered here that need updates but I can't get to them. Two in particular are 'Lady Bren' and 'Chelsea Brittlyn' which will be commercially available in the coming months.

I set up a new HMF account yesterday but that does not help me to make updates on my earlier submissions.

For further validation, my website is I have a rose section that I am developing as well.

I apologize in advance for the trouble. I have changed my email address in the past several years, not sure if that is the problem?

Thank you for your time.

Thank you so very much. My old email was with and could have been under several addresses. I think it was and/or I know my user name was LadyBren.

Thank you ever so much!

Can I gripe a little bit, please? Some people, when uploading photos, seem to upload every frame on their camera, in a very repetitive manner. It is difficult to scroll past all these repetitive photos, that really give no new info about the plant. I have two possible solutions. Could the persons doing this just stop putting up pictures that are,for all practical purposes, just duplicates. Alternatively, could the website be upgraded such that it makes it easier to scroll past all these extra photos, instead of making a viewer turn one 8 picture page at a time. Or maybe put a limit of 2 or 3 photos at a time on uploading and an instruction not to post repetitive photos of one bloom. It seems to be the one bloom photos that get quite tedious to scroll through. Pick your best shot or two when the subjects are very similar and let that be enough please.

Agree with both suggestions, duly noted.

The option to filter the photo list by what type of photo you want to see is a great idea, but I find it doesn't work reliably for me. I don't know if that is because photos are missing the proper tags, or because of a website coding issue. Is it possible to add those tags to the "Rate This Photo" area? That way, registered users could start to tag the existing photos. Or maybe there is a function I have simply missed.

The original intent was for the photo contributor to properly "tag" their own photos but as you noted often that's just not done. We generally shy away from allow users to alter the posts/uploads/etc of others but this might be a case where it could be beneficial to everyone. We will look into this further.

As far as the potential photo screening problem, as always, it greatly facilitates resolving an issue if we have a specific example to work with that we can replicate the conditions exactly.

Agree! Totally over seeing large number of poor-quality phone camera images. I can accept images slightly out of focus if there are very few images of a particular rose, and they add to the information bank. One possible solution if it can be added to the site changes is to provide the option of not seeing individual member's photos if you wished. It is time to start the cull and this hand is up to volunteer to assist with the job.
Agree with the 2 or 3 photos at a time, but my suggestion is to restrict the maximum number of photos that could be added for an individual rose to say 10. Over time a member could replace photos to have their best 10. We are not seeing enough whole bush, prickle and hip photographs.

We are of course always open to suggestions about how HMF could be improved, that too is what HMF is all about.

It would be great to create an open discussion regarding photos contributions. Should we limit the number of seasonal photos from an individual per rose; maybe allow users to vote for the removal of duplicates; allow moderator to cull photos ?

It's an interesting idea of allowing one to designate the hiding of another user's posts or photos but that seems such a severe, divisive step but not out of the question.

Tooth Fairy is a large continuous blooming rose. It seems to love the heat.
Reply #1 of 2 posted 4 days ago by NewDawn
It loves the heat and doesnt seem to mind the cold either. Winter 2023, tip hardy and -7 with biting -40 windchill that cut almost everything else to the ground. Unprecedented die-back on SO MANY roses, but Tooth Fairy emerged unscathed. Because of this she has put on size since posting pics and now exceeds 5.5ft in both height and width with no signs of stopping! Lots of dead cane underneath and doesnt mind a prune. After this first flush, shell be brough into bounds again. Her growth is slow and steady. LOVE this rose!!!
