DAY 256 – 19 OCTOBER 2012
- PEACE, LOVE, TRANQUILITY (27 OCTOBER 2012)
Walking through the fields out in the heart of the country, I spotted this rose hip. Thought the red against the green had a lovely Christmas look about it so I shot it with my CANON A2200 for my 365 Day Project.
The rose hip, also known as rose haw or rose hep, is the fruit of the rose plant, that typically is red-to-orange, but ranges from dark purple to black in some species. Rose hips begin to form after successful pollination of flowers in spring or early summer, and ripen in late summer through autumn.
Thank you Mattie for the link to rose hips. It was very useful.
