Wild roses grow easily in the foothills of the Cascades and the Coast range. We also have them in areas of the valley too. Luckily we have quite a few areas of them on the farm. From them we get Rose Hips. This time of year they are very lovely with flowers gone and just the red berries remaining. I always want to pick them and put them in my house during the fall and winter months, but I never do. They are usually surrounded by poison oak or blackberries, and I am not willing to suffer through poison oak and the prednisone that comes with it, or to get scratched by all the blackberries. So I enjoy them where they are and know that they will be back again next year.
