Prairie Roses, from Pale to Deep Pink

Oh, the Prairie Roses along the edges of Saskatchewan grid roads in July and August!

These Prairie Roses range from pale pink through a deep, almost crimson shade, and scent the air with the sweet smell of, well, summer roses. 

I know you guys roaring by in your dusty pick-up trucks and (yes, especially you, that somewhat-less-than-courteous, rock-spewing driver) new Mercedes...

I know you feel you own the road, but you're missing the best part of summer, the piece that only walkers can behold: The miracle of Prairie Roses growing wild in gravel. Free beauty at your feet.
