1. Such a beautiful splash of autumn colours! Speaking of rose hips, have you even tried rose hip jam? It’s not common here, but it could be found in some ethnic stores. It’s my favourite jam ever, and its smooth texture, fluid consistency (like thick honey) and tangy, not too sweet taste are unforgettable.

    1. This is a species rose, meaning it’s not a hybrid or produced by crossing different species. Most roses produce hips after blooming, unless the spent flowers are removed. The hips are fruits, in fact, sort of like apples. There’s some pulpy stuff inside and a lot of seeds. They can be made into jam, I understand, but I’ve never tried that. Short answer is if a rose blooms and is allowed to set seeds, there will be hips!
