Rose hips

Another shot of rose hips. I do this every year, but what the heck. I liked the way they looked with the brown parts, whatever they're called. They cover the flowers' petals before they open.

Autumn rose hips.

Today is predicted to be a rainy day, so we'll spend most of the day indoors. Poor Tasha. She has yet to encounter winter. Even though she was born in February, I'm sure she has no recollection of what it was like.


  1. Do you harvest them for teas and things?

  2. michael, nope. I should google what to do with them, there are so many.

  3. I like the way they look with the brown parts, too. Can't wait to see Sasha react to her first snow.

  4. Rose hips are high in Vitamin C or something like that. Civilians up and down the country were encouraged to collect them in WW2 in the UK to make syrup to give out to children as a food supplement - I think we were still being given it in the 1950s.

    PS: "Sepals" for the brown bits, I think.


Tell me what you think!
