Wild Roses

   There is a bank behind our house leading to the woods & fields up above. I have been envisioning flowers and ornamental grasses lining this bank and have planted a few things here but mostly it is overgrown with grass & weeds. Walking along it the other evening I spotted these wild roses in the grass. There is some nice bushes growing all by themselves. They where just hard to see with all the growth coming up around them. I got to work weeding & pruning, all the while swatting mosquitoes. Now you can see the pretty rose bushes. If I gradually add plants & flowers maybe someday I will have my hillside of blossoms.
