Wild Roses

As I mowed around the big garden yesterday, I noticed some pink in the hedgerows. When I looked closer I discovered that our wild roses are already blooming! I think of the wild roses as early June bloomers, so like everything else, they are running ahead of schedule.

Depending upon the age of the bloom and how much direct sunlight it receives, the bloom color can vary from hot pink to an almost mauve purple. A welcome pop of color in a sea of green.
