We have observed that this type of wild rose bush has relatively few blooms (when compared to the smaller varieties - top photo) and that the flowers wither quickly.  There are also very few perfectly formed flowers, which is evident in this photo; nevertheless, they are beautiful and fragrant.  This is all part of the pleasure of exploring and preserving the wonders of God's creation.  It is also a reminder that none of us are "perfect", either, but that we can strive for that perfection.  As Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:48, "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."; and in this perfection we will do no harm to each other, or to the animals, or to the environment.
