Yesterday while cutting the grass (in between the rain drops), I realized that the Wild Rose right at the fence was blooming. It has been some time since I’ve seen any flowers from this bush, so I got my camera out to record the event. 🙂
This fence is pretty much buried under Virginia Creeper. My neighbour loves the Creeper and encourages it to grow all along his fence – but it really does best on the section that is shared with my yard. The Wild Rose was difficult to see under all the leaves of Virginia.
I broke off some of the vine and/or moved some of it to take some pictures – then I got my pruning shears and cleared enough away on my side of the fence to let the light in for the Wild Rose. As soon as I put my camera away, there were a few bees enjoying the flowers.
