So a different ‘F’ alliteration. I have a few other frog shots but am not really impressed with them thus it’s on to another subject.
Common Cinquefoils-Potentilla simplex started lining our sidewalk a few years ago so the mower spares these mowees.
Members of the Rosaceae, they are also known by some, but not by me until now, as Old-field Five Fingers. Seeing them growing by the front walk one wouldn’t think of them as roses, at least I didn’t. But comparing them to our invasive and skin tearing Multiflora Rose-Rosa multiflora, aka Rambler Rose, one can see the resemblance.
R. multiflora are very widespread, often growing as thickets, and my description of what they do to you, even through tough denim, as you try to bushwhack your way to something interesting further in is accurate. But their rose hips are edible as a saving grace, and the flowers are pretty. Too bad people don’t over-forage them though. 🙂
