Dog Roses

I thought it was appropriate to grab a few images of one of my favourite wild flowers while out walking the dog...

Dog Rose - rosa canina
 I've always found the humble Dog Rose attractive, I think because of their simple beauty.


Whether white or pink these little flowers always bring me pleasure and that's especially true of the 'in bud' form.


The stems can hide some vicious thorns, but the flowers pose no danger to the myriad of insects that visit on a daily basis.
