Multi – Flora Rose

Multi-Flora Rose was introduced as an experimental natural fence row. An experiment gone out-of-control, this lovely flowering shrub is now the invasive curse to every forest restoration project, farmers pasture, and overgrown fence-row.

Sunday Scene

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,  not of works, lest anyone should boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:8-10 NKJV

 

Perseverance – Trout Lilly

Floral Friday – Wildflower

Also called the Fawn Lilly or Dog Toothed Violet, these flowers come from plants rooted and growing for six or more years. Each bulb can be found about a foot or so deep with plenty of company. When you find one, you’ve most stumbled into a whole colony. Its perseverance is our visual treat.
