Pretty Sharp

Pretty pink prickles from the Rosa Canina, also known as a Wild Rose or Dog Rose. These prickles belong to a Wild Rose in a local hedgerow, which is mixed with Hawthorn, Blackthorn and Elder – making a rather impenetrable hedge!

I love the vivid pink colour which really stands out against the green leaves of the other plants.

    1. It looks like it’s ready for the fight doesn’t it? It reminds me of an upper-class femme-fatale of the ’50s, replete with sharpened pink-varnished nails and cigarette sitting snug inside a cigarette holder, whilst reclining on a chaise-longue, ready to fight off the plain gals. Vivid imagination? Moi?
