Ah!! I've been wondering if we have those here! I saw such beautiful clusters of these along the roads in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania when we were up that way in May! I'd love to add some to my back yard if it's a native plant!

Thanks for the pic!

You have such a beautiful countryside. Keep photographing it!

WIP, I think this is "pasture rose", as opposed to "prairie rose" which is another native wild rose seen across much of the U.S.

There's also a multiflora rose that's often seen growing wild. It's pretty, but non-native and very invasive. Some places it gets to be quite a problem.

John, I have been slacking off a little on posting photos. Thanks for the encouragement! :)

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
