Hip Snip


This is a rose 'hip' from my Rosa 'New Dawn' climber in a previous year.


The hips haven't turned red-orange yet this year. In an ordinary year, most of my climber's hips turn brown or black and shrivel. I spent a few minutes today pruning these ugly hips off the plant, leaving the healthy green ones to turn red later this autumn.
