The beach rose is as common as sea grass along our coast in June and probably photographed as much as our lighthouses along our rocky coastline, too. I think what I love the most about them is their ruggedness– and their ability to withstand our ever changing weather patterns, from gale winds, to our ongoing ocean spray — not to mention how brutal our winters can be here. They can and do endure whatever conditional elements Mother Nature throws at them. Now that’s stamina for you!

Truth be known—they lure you in, especially our many visitors… who don’t have a clue as to what’s about to hit them.  You are drawn to this lovely flower, it’s striking color and leaf form… but then that heavenly essence simply finishes you off and reels you in! I kid you not! 🙂 I absolutely love the intoxicating essence of our beach roses. ❤ Talk about addicting… these beauties sincerely are!
