Wild Rose, Present and Future, Missoula, Montana
wild rose has been among my favourite flowers since childhood. A delicate blossom housing an honest, old-world rose fragrance, Rosa acicularis is the Provincial Flower of Alberta, Canada. I remember breathing their scent during childhood summer rambles, braving prickles to pick short-stemmed, miniature bouquets for my mum or big sisters, who always found a small glass or a teacup.
