Wild rose Rosa acicularis

They are everywhere, filling the air with their wonderful fragrance. Roses are one of my favourite flowers, partly because of my name. They used to bloom for my birthday but now, thanks to climate change, they are a couple weeks early.

Other wildflowers flowering this week are labrador tea, buttercup, hawkweed, narrowleaved peavine, bedstraw, oxeye daisy, indian paintbrush, red osier dogwood, bunchberry, queen’s cup, columbine.
