Beautiful! I like how you captured the dew on the petals. Yes, that's a wild rose, probably Rosa nitidia (Northeastern rose). According to this website - parts are edible. http://northernbushcraft.com/topic.php?name=wild+rose&region=nl&ctgy=edible_plants

I've harvested the hips (berries). But, always be cautious when harvesting wild food!

thanks Lessa. I should have known the species, but it is many decades since i did my lone bio-geography course.  I liked those flowers and loved the dew on them, that is why i noticed them in the first place.
