Seeing without seeing. That was what occurred to me as I strode along the path and suddenly saw these beautiful orange rose hips. The berries had just started turning on our wild roses at home so I knew immediately what these were. And yet I had never noticed this rose bush before. It was just part of the greenery until I noticed it change. This appears to be a dog rose (Rosa canina).
The rose hips are edible and contain Vitamin C. They appear to have many valuable properties. I have often intended to harvest them on the roses in our front garden but tend to leave them for the animals.
