This is a familiar sight at this time of year at the far end of our paddock, the wild rose bush full of rosehips.
What you don't expect to see next to the rosehips .... is dog roses!!
This poor bush is totally confused with the seasons.
We had roses blooming away at Christmas and back in January of this year that lasted for weeks, then they disappeared. Then they came back when they should have appeared and now here they are again. I'm not complaining ... they are absolutely beautiful ... but it must be hard work for the bush not knowing which season it's supposed to be.
Meanwhile here is Suky pottering under another bush while Mum snaps away at the roses :-)
