I think these are eglantines (wild roses). They are pretty common in our area and grow on the margins of the vineyard parcels, among other places. Some can be on the white side, like this one, others can be very pink in color.

These flowers are mostly white, tinged with pink.

We're expecting showers and mild thunderstorms again today. The grass is growing and so are the weeds. Same old, same old.


  1. Lovely flowers. I wouldn’t mind showers and a mild thunderstorm. But, then I don’t have gardens to weed nor lawns to mow.

  2. I feel your pain, Walt. It’s rain and weeds here too except that we often get 2” of rain in a couple of hours.

  3. The things you learn on the intertoobz. I didn't realize that Eglantine was wild rose. How very medieval.

  4. I always think of Shakespeare when I see these flowers.

  5. mitch, the grass and weeds are getting taller...

    bettyann, we rarely, if at all, get that much in such a short time.

    emm, also called "sweet briar," I believe.

    michael, wherefore art thou Ur-spo?


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
