Northern Bedstraw: Saskatchewan Prairie Wildflower

They never tell you this: When you walk Saskatchewan grid roads in July, the sweet scent of wild Prairie Roses and Northern Bedstraw will rise with the dust at every step.

This small-blossomed, fragrant, white Prairie willdflower was abundant along the country roads around Muenster, Saskatchewan, early this summer, growing in tangles on the shoulders of roads, along with grasses, roses, anemones, gaillardia and more.
