Autumn Rosehips

From 19 May, rosehips from Dunedin Botanic Garden; they’re another joy of autumn! New Zealand. The first and last photos are of a hybrid musk bred by Pemberton, ‘Kathleen’ UK 1922. A NZer on twitter today wrote ‘friendhips’ instead of ‘friendships’ and now I can’t help thinking of rosehips as ‘friendhips’ ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love it when a typo leads to something new. When I was a teenager my friends and I would sometimes have fun with magazine articles that were printed in two columns. At the end of a line of text in the first column, instead of continuing down to the next line in the same column, we’d purposely keep reading across the column boundary. Usually the result made no sense, but once in a while it created a statement that was humorous or clever.

    1. I love that open-ness to new possibilities! Funnily enough, the spell-check has red-lined ‘open-ness’ and among other options offered ‘open-mess’ and I’m just LOL ’cause that’d surely summarize most outcomes of your game! ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. Oh that’s such a beautiful sweet photo! ~and of course I’m delighted to receive such lovely feedback on the rosehip shots thanks Mike ๐Ÿ™‚
