New growth on a tree in the dog park.
I took all of these photos in Reid Park after sunset tonight. Dusk has kept the camera from managing sharp images, but I kind of like the effect of that.
When the dogs and I left the dog park this evening I led them on leashes to the Rose Test Garden in Reid Park to see how the roses are coming along. Mostly, I can't tell that there are any flowers present or imminent. I thought for a moment that the red thing on this bush at the garden fence was a rosebud, but up close it looks more like a crabapple or a mini-pomegranate. I don't know what it actually is. Rose hips? What are rose hips?
Here's another plant at the fence line. This one provided the only actual roses I saw for sure.
I have occasionally heard of "rose trees" out here. I don't know if a rose plant as such can be a tree. If so, is that what this is?
Inside the garden, which was locked, the roses of rose bushes are starting to show signs of color, if not necessarily buds or flowers.
Be sure to check Ellipsis each week for the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot. And I'll be back tonight with Part Two of my entry for this week.
