rose hips...let them ripen
Rose hips from the rose "rosa hansa", a rose with a lot of wild rose parentage. It repeat blooms. It smells of cloves and spices. It rewards you with big red ripe hips if you let them go. What to do with hips?
make jelly out of them
make jams out of them
make a tea out of them
let them stay and become food for the winter song birds.
