Wild Roses

This is my favorite time of year. While running the dog through the meadow, I noticed how the grasses have suddenly gotten as tall as I am and the wild rose blossoms are absolutely stunning.
The Nootka Rose is my favorite wild rose here in the Pacific Northwest. Filling the fields with huge thickets of thorny brambles, in June when their huge blossoms open, the air is filled with their irresistably sweet scent.
