We have a rose bush that is starting to get get ready to explode in color. It is a native Virginia Rose and in a week or two will be heavy with pink blooms. But for now we have to live with the anticipation of what is to come.
In the spring time our lawn hosts hundreds of these small berry plants. They are right at eye level for the turtles living in the yard and make a good turtle snack so we affectionately refer to them as turtleberries, although most people call them False or Indian Strawberries. The flowers and berries are reminiscent of strawberries and they are edible but they are unrelated to the human food and do not have much of a taste.
