Macro capture of one of these wonderful & beautiful wild pink ocean flowers growing in abundance near the seashore around Point Judith, Rhode Island. Photograph was taken in the small fishing village of Galilee on a sunny day, May 28, 2010. I was wondering what type of wild flowers these might be,...wild roses or Primroses. Maybe Jenn, or other EPZ flower photographers might know the species of this vivid pink wildflower. Hope that you like it.

I knew, even before I saw whose image this is-- they will grow, maybe even taller than you--these un named rugosas-- and you will NOT walk thru this hedge--

like your name for the flower---

Did you get something to eat at Champin's per chance-- or maybe Aunt Carries?

and I do eny you this visit-- just 4 miles form my grandkids!

Thanks, Jenn, for your nice comment and the information. Yesterday, was just so beautiful a day down in Point Judith & Galilee for my photoshoot all afternoon. Brilliant sun, nice breeze, low humidity, and about 74 degrees. These pink wildflowers grow all over and are so pretty to see and photograph. I had thought that they may be a variety of wild roses or Primrose. Anyway, I first went over to Portside, and had a half dozen of those Clamcakes. Then, after about 2 hours of shooting, I decided to go over to Georges, near the new Salty Brine Beach, and, guess what?? I ordered "another half dozen" of Clamcakes. Overall, I had a lovely day & wonderful photoshoot, that I will gladly be sharing the Pix on EPZ. Hope that You are having a nice Weekend. Again, thanks for your feedback. Regards...Peter

I Britain we call this shrub Rosa Rugosa. It is the common wild Rose. It is softer than the Rosa Canina or Dog Rose but the flowers are larger and are of course this beautiful deep pink coplour.
Yours are flowering earlier than ours but then I guess we are a bit further north.
A great photograph. Thank you for shareing. Richard

In Scotland the Primrose is a low growing wild herbaceous plant and the flower is pale yellow in colour. It is of the Primula family.
