Rose and Her Daughters

Pink pasture rose.

The pretty pasture rose is blooming, and covered with buds for more blooms. This rose bush is an old native pasture rose or prairie rose and was here when I moved in. I’m not sure if she was planted, or if she had come up on its own and the prior owners just let it go. I moved her from a shadier spot years ago, and since it has a billion thorns, large and small, chose a spot where she wouldn’t reach out to tear my clothing as I walked past. When my yard grew overgrown in the past few years, she was shaded by taller natives like jewelweed and pokeberries. But now that things are back down to the natives and other plants I planted myself she is very happy in her sunny spot by the driveway. She is covered in buds. Expect many photos.
