Wild Rose

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.

      1. Looks like ours is called Rosa Canina meaning dog rose, it’s our native wild rose, but it looks really like the one in your garden 🙂 But its only surpose to live in Europe and Northwest Africa and some parts of Asia, interesting, I wonder of it is the same one…..yes it is the same apparently it was used as a root stock in the US & Canada,but escaped into the wild in about the early 1900’s 🙂 now I know 🙂
