In a dry and sun-filled place like this along a fence bordering a highway, a wild rose bush will encumber a fence until it hides it completely. It is a beautiful sight in late May and early June. I found this rose along highway 16 in Okmulgee County, Oklahoma.
An old fence post is barely visible. You can’t see the barbed wire at all.
A rose bush can grow up a post or tree and overtake it.
This bush is brighter colored than most. It was at an abandoned homesite.
In shady spots, the pasture rose blooms.
Its blooms are less profuse and the simplicity is wonderful.
Finding a wild rose climbing a pasture fence, is like finding a friend in an unexpected place.
