As a kid, when I was shirking school and the weather was fine, I took my kayak and paddled to an island where I found shelter on the beach. A beach and a place often defined by large Beach Roses, either in bloom or later in the season, bearing the well-known orange fruits.
I have not dug up the roots for them to be part of my project. I did not dig
them up. They lay scattered on my beach. The beach was like having been hit by a
bomb. A municipal front loader or an excavator had systematically dug up all
the roses and filled them into containers for destruction. Only the deep traces
from the heavy construction machinery and small parts og roots remained in the
Thanks for this time, Wild Rose.
