Rosa acicularis


Rosa acicularis

Almost at its prime, there are banks of them along the roads and in the valleys. Beautiful with the birch trees.

Good morning Greenthumb. This is lovely.
Everytime I look at your garden pictures it makes me respect nature even more. Looking back at how your garden look like in winter, when almost everything have to come in or sheltered, then comes spring/summer everything's growing again. It is just amazing!

i'm with you on that one Michaella.
i think you do amazingly well in such an environment.GT
it takes a lot off dedication and understanding of nature.

Ah, summer. :-) Thanks for the comments. I'm glad to share. I am always amazed when summer is as full as now. Like winter becomes a dream that you don't want to think about. We've got solid extremes here. I've been collecting the wild plants and flowers I know and looking closely, I'm more and more amazed what does just come back to life.

They do have a nice hip. They're awfully prickly or I'd move some closer. Theres enough nearby to collect from.

Solstice! A wonderful long day, 2hr sunset at midnight. We get a little wild up here!

Those roses look wonderful! There are plenty of roses in flower around here & I've take a few pictures of them this year. The Dog Rose flowers & produces hips abundantly every year, with this year being no exception!

This is beautiful! It seems you have many native roses in Alasksa.

Yes they are beautiful, we also have them growing profusely down the Bridle Path where we take Polly for her walks!

Thanks for commenting. We have a whole lot of this one. I don't see many others really. in pots for the summer I've seen a few. All imports.

I love having them around for sure.
