A Wild Rose




This sneaky wild rose climbs the side of our house in early 
Spring, even before I realize how tall it has gotten.  Typically
we would cut it down, it's not good to have it climbing up 
and growing into the siding; however, I left it for the bees.


Another view.
It had so many beautiful blooms that I didn't really want
to lose it until they were finished for the year.  It doesn't 
bloom more than once.


They really are very pretty.
Most of the wild roses don't climb up anything.


They typically just spread out in the woods.


These attract little bees so I figured ours would like it too.

You know that is really pretty. They come up wild? I kinda like it myself.

Maybe you can move it in the fall and put it near a tree or make a trellis for it.
Unless it's not worth the work.

It is pretty!
