The delicate fresh rose of the wayside in autumn changes to scarlet and strident
Rose Hips in plenty this autumn: 8th Oct 2019
Roses bloomed in profusion this June-time. Now the briars are red-hip laden
I’m sure they’re inedible but they look juicy and delicious…

Not juicy, but they are edible. Once you remove the seeds. We used to use the seeds as itching powder, which might clue you to their nature. The remains are best simmered slowly. Rosehip syrup… you might recognise the name.
Rosehips like in vitamin c?
You’ve got it. And itching powder.
You’ve got it. And itching powder 🙂
Just gorgeous! ❤
I thank you. I’d taken photos of heavily laden briars. But it was just too much to take in. Better to focus on the few. Though believe me, the hedegrows this year are scarlet with hips, not the usual crimson with haws.
You did a wonderful job! ❤
Now I shall be expecting my jar of rosehip jelly…
Gosh, by airmail? Or a hip at a time through the phone line.
Yet another simple capture showing off the beauty of the berry. I agree with Violet it looks delicious 🍒😊
Well, it gives us the rich vitamin C of rosehip syrup.
You’re lucky you have it then. 🙂
Nah, not me. Though I do have same tbags with it
Oh I’ll have to look for some 🙂
Usually Rosehip and something else.
Something else? Oh, a combination.
A combination of rosehips and other ingredients. Sorry delay, the Spam-box got yer 🙂
I think the WP spam-box is working over time. I’m lost with comments
Yea, goes crazy sometimes, doesn’t it.
Try NUTS! 😁
Is the Spam machine giving you a hard time?
No mostly pending!
Chill. No one’s gonna away if you don’t respond in the next five minutes.
Right. Thanks 🙂
I just realized that although I immediately grasped that you were referring to rose hips in the title, I had never actually known what rose hips *were*. Only that they were somehow related to roses and could be made into tea. Now that I’ve finally seen them, they’re quite lovely!
They are indeed. These are wild ones, dog rose. Those you find in gardens tend to be chunkier, and veer more to crimson.
Seeing those, I would never have recognized that as a rose bush. Now I will! (Well, maybe, if I actually remember).
You’ll remember 🙂
You have more faith in my horticultural memory than I do!
I won’t say it can’t be mistaken for anything else. In UK it can’t, but I don’t know about your more exotic flora.
Oh I believe you there! I just wouldn’t trust myself to be able to put name to image.
Rose. Rose hips.
