Wild Beauty

Wild Rose
Wild Rose

I confess that this is one of my favourite wild flowers that gives me tiny moments of joy every time I see them. Not unlike how I am with fruit blossoms, I can’t stop photographing them. Each one seems to be more lovely than the last, or perhaps it was that I had forgotten how beautiful they are and so have to take another photograph. So you might well see a repeat of this flower at some point in the future. Each stage of this lovely full bloom has its own appeal, from the tight red buds held in that close protective embrace by the twisting green sepals through to the softly drifting petals that will soon carpet the ground around the perfect pink flower, crowned with gold in the centre which is a such a delight. In any case it makes for another perfect Pink Flower Day and so I make no apologies! I hope this brings you a tiny moment of joy to start your day!

  1. You have made my day, Ellie. This is the flower after which my Sweet Briar is named. I believe the flower’s actual (non-botanical) name is Sweetbriar. While my Blossom’s name is more generic, I see her as a wild rose in lockstep with my Sweet Briar. On any given day, it’s hard to know which one is the pricklier or which is the sweeter. However, today there is no doubt, it’s as sweet as it can be. I, too, am in love with the simple elegance and innocent beauty of this wild rose. Thank you, Ellie, for today’s gift.

    1. Once again that has made my day, knowing how that photograph made yours. Is it a coincidence that the briar is also called a dog rose? Your little Briar is certainly a sweetheart, as is Blossom and I hope to see both again soon!

  2. Thanks again Ellie it is a lovely little flower. When you look at the texture on the petals and the intriguing centers in the flowers there is such beauty there. Thanks again for that little bright spot in our day. Hope you and Steve have a great day.
