Time To Smell The Roses – Day 12 Inktober 2017

There was time on Thursday to stop and smell the roses!

We have a white variety of Dog Rose which climbs all over our woodshed.  As I enjoyed the light, sweet fragrance of the blooms I wondered how it got its name.  Wikipedia enlightened me – in classical times it was believed that the root was a cure for the bite of a mad dog.
