Prairie Rose

Look what’s starting to bloom right outside the kitchen window — our Prairie Rose (Rosa setigera)!

I just love this rose.  It’s our native rose, so you can just plant it and watch it grow — no fuss.  Just look how the petals fade so there’s all different pinks — some even spotted

Love how it has blooms and buds all at the same time, so there’s always something going on.

So pretty.

More pictures soon when those buds open — I just took these really quick before work, because the flowers don’t last long!  But there’s LOTS of them, so that’s okay.
