What was supposed to be a walk to clear my head of some thoughts and simultaneously take a breath of fresh air instead turned out to this...:-)
The bright red Hagebutte on the rose bushes called out to me. Soon I was like a little child promptly breaking tiny branches of the red buttons and also looking out for wild flowers.
I ended up collecting wild daisies, some unknown flowers and berries too.
Hagebutte are the fruits of different kinds of roses. Something I learnt from my german friends. The pulp from hagebutte(found at the fleshy base) can be harvested in late autumn to make purees or jams!!
A tiring process I am told. It's simpler to buy the readymade jams. Since this is something new I came across, I am yet to try it out.
For now, I took satisfaction in simply getting them home to brighten up a corner.
Hagebutte are also used in flower arrangements or floral deco. I just love the way these simple flowers and berries from the meadows have transformed a corner in my home.
I am now beginning to wonder as to how I have never come across the fruit of a rose plant back home. Any thoughts on this??
Is it because of the seasons?
