  2. Rosa Rugosa - reminds me of summers on the Cape. Sigh, indeed!

  3. I believe those are Rugosa Roses- one of my favorites. I noticed a few of them in some of your other beach photographs. I've grown Rugosa roses in my gardens many times because I love the spectacular colors. They are also used for erosion control along coastlines.

  4. The non native Rosa Rugosa is an invasive plant that can form monotypic stands.

  5. Remember making "rose water" for yourself each summer, for the winter months? Can't recall the best recipe. Anyone?

    1. Rose water is made with Rosa Damascena. This one is great for the Rose preserves (petals), juice (fruit, without seeds), oil (seeds). All of them, especially juice, with amazing health benefits.

  6. The pathway to Goldthwaite Beach every summer day in my youth...
