These are the Nootka rose, native to these parts, taken at Fern Cove Nature Preserve on Vashon Island, in Washington State.
Our local, wild Nootka Rose is actually a bit of a weed. It doesn’t have the elegance of the carefully cultivated hybrids but it has a simple charm…and a lovely scent. I took these pictures today at the beach. They are just coming to the end of their peak blooming period and rose hips are starting to form.
