Watch out for the bee!

Marine Level 8 May 29, 2018

regular bees don't bother me. THe Africanized ones scare me though. I havent met any but I have friends and their dogs that have survived those attacks. Very scary

@btroje They are nasty

Very nice. Rosa Rugosa. They grow wild at some beaches. I had some by the barn. White and pink. They make almost impenetrable hedges.

oh, i love them! they remind me of the little north sea islands off the coast of my former german home.

I was amazed how they grew on the coast of Maine. So hardy and versatile

@btroje, it seems they actually prefer the rougher weather conditions.

@walklightly You can find Rugosa roses thriving along the beaches of Norway and Denmark.

The rosehips are filled with seeds. We used to pop them open, them put them doown the back of our friends' shirts. My mother made rosehip jelly whe there were a lot of them.

Wow... that's new for me on what i thought Rose's looked like.... I need to be educated on design.

This is what roses originally looked like, (as far as science can tell).
Presumably a mutation happened, in which the rose had multi layers of petals, of course some human noticed and kept that trait going. (And further experimentation created further varieties)

@njoy_life_2 thanks
