she's just my boardwalk briar rose







Sounds like a line in a country song, but in fact it's a literal thing: here is indomitable Rosa multiflora, the rambling rose, coming up through the boardwalk over the marsh by our house.



Also coming up through and around the boardwalk are some boardwalk Virginia creeper, some boardwalk poison ivy, some boardwalk oriental bittersweet, some boardwalk Japanese knotweed, and some boardwalk brome grass.

Many thanks to Wakanomori for the photo of the boardwalk briar rose!

Oh, wonderful! No matter what, green living things keep pulsing away (do they pulse? I bet in some way they do!) uncoiling and moving and doing their absolute best to live and (literally) flourish - floreat, boardwalk briar rose - and all your boardwalk compatriots!

Floreat ---beautiful. "Lift up your hands!" Only it's their own green selves they're lifting up. I love it too.
