Another Type Rose..
This rose is called, Rugosa or Beach Rose..It is a very dense shrub..nasty thorns..
It will bloom from June to October..I have them around the deck, very private bush.
Not much smell with the flower, but pretty..Now these rose hips you can use to make jelly, syrup and whatever recipe you want with rose hips..I always wanted to try and make something with them, but haven't yet..As you know, rose hips are full of Vitamin C, so it really would be worth the effort.
Things that grow in this yard, are usually things that are wild or no work at all to take care of. As I have said before, I am not a gardener..I wish I was, since I enjoy the beauty of everything.
Till next time, keep looking up.
