Dog Rose (Rosa Canina) is a climbing wild rose principally native to Europe. It climbs in a chaotic way into trees or sprawls shrub-like if a tree is not available. This rose is in full bloom and yesterday we found a superb display of them as we took a walk over the edge of the Chiltern Hills.
Summer is here and we are slightly discombobulated by the wall to wall sunshine, blue skies and seasonal warmth. So un-English from the dire wet summers of the last two or three years. Delightful nevertheless.
