June ~ Beach Roses

It's June. It's a chilly grey day, a day to light all the scented candles and brew a hot cup of tea, a day for laundry and sewing. Out on the the beach however, the dunes roses are undaunted. They burst into bloom promptly on June first. Their sweet perfume fills the still foggy air today.

The hardy wild native beach roses grow on each side of the pathway over the dunes. White roses are rare, pink is the usual color. Both are filled with bumble bees on sunny mornings and smell delightful.

Remember this?

This is much nicer....

 This must be a domesticated beach rose. It's very pretty, planted along the beach lane.

Have a beautiful weekend! Bring your coffee and meet me at the bench?
