|Rosa Rugosa on Cape Ann MA|
NOTE: Magical Monday Blog Meme is no longer due to life demands. Thank you all who supported it. Wishing you magical and fun blogging. Do enjoy our links today for Monday.
Today's post got wiped out and I had to do a completely new post late this evening. The photo above and below (black and white) is of Rosa Rugosa ~ a wild rose that is all over Cape Ann. Some folks here even make what I believe they call beach plum jelly from it. I have also included a haiku at the bottom of the page.
We are exploring creativity today with two very creative blogs:
Beautiful flower and the photos are quite lovely!ReplyDelete
Well, if that Art Muse Dog is not just the cutest thing!ReplyDelete
I will have to look into "beach plum jelly" as it sounds delightful, but without the rose it would not likely be the same thing.
Thanks for the haiku!
Very beautiful rose pics & lovely poem!ReplyDelete
Lovely images of the rosa rugosa -- interesting how different it looks in black and white! Your post brought back so many memories..... I used to make beach plum jam many years ago when we lived on Cape Cod. Have a great week! Namaste, GinaReplyDelete

Rose is so perfect, it almost looks artificial (but I know it's not)....ReplyDelete
I went back after commenting, and could not figure out how to post a link on your new blog-hop....by the way, the haiku echoes my day to day existence......ReplyDelete
Joanne ~ that is because there is no longer a Magical Monday Blog Hop ~ I am linked with two blog hops on Monday and that is all ~ Hope you had a good weekend ~ ^_^Delete
Beautiful wild rose!ReplyDelete
A stunning rose- the way you have the buds in the background is stunning!ReplyDelete
What a lovely rose. The wild roses are the best. :-)ReplyDelete
The old rose colors--like this heartbreaking pink--have no rivals from the modern hybrids. Your photo really highlights the delicacy of this beauty.ReplyDelete
Roses are just too pretty n so fragrant! Great shot of this beauty!ReplyDelete
So beautiful! Both in color and b&w!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I don't thing I've ever seen a rose I haven't liked.ReplyDelete
Hi ArtMuse Dog & Carol, I will miss Magical Mondays, but I can tell what you have up will be magical regardless! Gorgeous rose...ReplyDelete
