Northern Wild Roses

The wild rose is the provincial flower of Alberta. But there are many of these lovely flowers everywhere, especially in the north.

They grow beside roads and in fields, splashing the green with their pretty pink, so cheery and fragrant.

That which we call a rose would by any other name still smell as sweet. πŸ™‚ ~Shakespeare

    1. They are, especially when they’re in a big mass. You can smell them as you pass by. I don’t know a lot about plants either. I can name some, but like you, I really enjoy them πŸ™‚

  1. Alberta roses are a feast for the eyes, no matter where you find them. We have actually found similar looking roses in Europe and in NZ. They are definitely in season right now (as are the mosquitoes down here). Cheers Lynette. Allan

    1. Yes, they are in season right now, as are the mossies. We’ve had a few days of rain recently that has really brought them out. I find the wild roses so pretty. I’ve seen similar flowers in Europe as well.

  2. Beautiful pics, Lynette. I would love to be seeing them in person. Stay tuned for my bee balm post, which should be coming son, like a couple of days.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
