Eglantine

An arch of eglantine

An arch of eglantine

How much more elegant that sounds than ‘dog rose’.

I haven’t been able to work out what type of wild rose the name eglantine specifically refers to, but I suspect it’s as vague as dog rose.

Whatever name it goes by, it’s not quite so much appreciated when it grows over the path.

The beautiful, secret path which leads to the gully at the foot of our land, loud at the moment with the sound of hidden waterfalls, is getting overgrown.

Although this particular spray resembles a bridal arch and is no barrier, Nature won’t be long reclaiming her own.

A rose by any other name ...
