Prickly Rose: Wild Pasture Roses

Driving by a pasture, I saw a flash of pink and caught the rich scent of roses. Prickly Roses. Hardy  shrubs aka prairie wildflowers, whose flowers soften the air and landscape in June and July.

The prickly roses I photographed were blooming on bushes about three feet high, surrounded by  glossy dark green leaves. No rose hips yet, just a few spent flowers.
