Rose Hips

Rose Hips

The fruit of the wild rose bushes are ripe. The “Rose Hips” are bright and cheery. I understand they are full of vitamin C, and sometimes when I walk in the woods and see ripe rose hips, I’ll pop a few in my mouth. They aren’t very tasty, but I like the idea of the vitamin C. I’ve heard they have twice as much vitamin C as an orange. (however, I don’t know what quantity they are talking about)

If anyone knows how to make Rose Hip tea, please leave your comments.

If you’re thinking of harvesting some Rose Hips this fall, hurry up before the Deer find them first. They love Rose Hips!

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Juvenile

This morning a juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker visited the backyard. You can see he’s just starting to get red feathers above and below his beak. This would indicate a male bird as the female has a white throat.
