The rose buds seem very lonely, Polona..not even the leaves giving it a company..and wonder where its wildly reaching out..

these wild roses - they just get me on my nerves..need to prune them??

your photo is beautiful, some sort a character that i like :-)

Liked it as always, Polona

Thank you Polona for being there at my corridor..but i was out all day...and just started my rounds:-)

polona said...

these are rose hips - the fruit of the rose, not rose buds... wild roses don't bloom in autumn...

Devika said...

thank you Polona..for the info; most kind of you :-)

But, buds or fruits; autumn or spring --does it make a difference, anyway?!

Please do not mind Polona -- i am inclined to ask this question the most these days...

wishes!

you are welcome, devika.
i actually found this rose bush in the mountains where they grow completely wild... of course they have to shed their leaves to survive the winter but the hips remain pretty for a long time after the bush has gone to rest. and they provide food for the few remaining birds or chamois :)

and you ask if it matters whether it's autumn or spring... well, it matters a great deal in these latitudes where the wildlife has to adapt to survive the harsh cold winters.

Devika said...

The hips seems useful then...:-)

the other -- whether it's autumn or spring -- thats my introspection Polona...i didn't mean it for Slovenia.

sorry if that sounded awkward, Polona...never intended that way..
