Wild Roses

Wild roses grow in abundance along the banks of our dikes. Their sweet fragrance filling the air.
This was taken on a section of dike called Blue Heron Loop. Though there is no heron in this picture, they are frequently seen in this area.

You mentioned smelling the roses. I have lost some of my smell senses but I can almost smell this flower. It looks like a very old rose variety.

I do like their naif side. In French, we call them "Eglantine" which is also an old surname.

Great composition! Love the backdrop of the mountain range and the delicate flowers in the foreground. Pretty pastel pink, too.

Beautiful photo. I like your blog. It looks so refreshing.... It is so hot for the moment in Montpellier.

Two years ago, I was supposed to go and teach at a university in Seattle. I could have visited British Columbia. But I turned down the offer, silly me. My back terribly hurt at the time (now it's fine).
