Multiflora is Blooming

It's hard to be mad at this thorny wild rose that is slowly taking over my woods when it blooms. The flowers are lovely and the scent is heavenly. I especially like the tiny pink rose buds. Every since Super Storm Sandy, when so many trees came down and allowed more sunlight into the woodlands, these bushes are becoming Science Fiction Movie Material. Nothing can penetrate them! And I'm too tired to even try. :-)
Have a great weekend. xo

I'd be tempted to leave them be. They're lovely.

I have heard of the days when farmers purposefully planted these as an impenetrable hedge (even keeping rabbits out!) around their fields.
