Damage to rose buds and blooms

I have had some buds look like the photo under the rose midge question. Healthy blooms and foliage over most of the plant and then a few buds or shoots similar to that photo. Almost like the water shoots you see on bare roots. I thought it was the freeze.
This is a photo I took the other day. Please tell me this is not midge! And anybody know what this damage could be?

Most likely it was from cold temps while the bud was forming. Some roses can be affected if it goes below 50 degrees while the bloom is forming. I have a bunch of these stunted blooms.
