Nootka Rose

The last time I talked about Rosa nutkana was in the depth of winter in January when I posted a photo of the seed pods or "hips" when they were in the bright red winter colour.  Now it's time for the flowers which are out in the last few days.
They are always a welcome spring event because of their colour and the fragrance that wafts up from a cluster of rose bushes on a warm spring evening.  It only lasts for a week or 10 days and then they dwindle off, so enjoy them while they are out.

At 21 C today it was pleasant in the Bella Coola Valley, but apparently that will change tomorrow according to the weather people.  Grizzly
