June 10 - S. and R. set out our picnic lunch
We were surrounded by wild roses.
The Wild Rose (Rosa acicularis) is also known as Prickly Rose. This shrub can grow up to 15 metres tall. The fruit of the Wild Rose is called rosehips (or hips). These pear-shaped red seed pods grow up to an inch in diameter and stay on the bush all winter. They are high in Vitamin C.
