My short words

The prickly wild roses decorated the bushy green field with the pink flowers gently.

The city and the forest seem to get along well together when I see it from here.

Here is one of my favorite places. (Photo 3) :)

Memo[edit]

Prickly wild rose prickles (Photo 4)
  • It can be distinguished whether it's Prickly wild roses or Woods' roses.
    --- The large stems of prickly wild roses have denser prickles than Woods' roses (Photo 4).[4]
  • Alberta’s floral emblem is the 'Prickly wild rose' that is popular in Canada.[6]
