THE SCENT OF ROSES

There is always something nice to look forward to in the hedgerows along the roads here in West Cork. During the height of, or late summer, there are the wild Roses, they grow profusely and make a lovely show, especially their scents is what interests me as I love it. Here are some photos I took during their time of flowering, and their fruits also, which by now is bright red, juicy, and plentiful, the birds are the best customers, they love it.

Lots of Roses grown wild along the roadside here in West Cork, they are a pleasure to behold, and their scents make the country side very fragrant during summer.

And the Rosehips are plentiful now that summer is nearly over and autumn is approaching.  There is a lot one can do with the Rosehips, making jelly, or making a cough syrup are some of the ways to use them.
