Rose hips and legacies

Rose hips are what is left behind after a rose has blossomed.  They are high in vitamin C and can be used for making herbal tea, jam and are even an essential component of Slovania's national soft drink.

This picture was taken at the Beltzer Rose garden located at Bassett Creek Park in Crystal.  Mr. Belzer donated and cares for the rose garden in memory of his wife, who enjoyed the park immensely.

What a beautiful legacy!
