Rose Garden

“I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine there’s gotta be a little rain sometime.”
Lynn Anderson, Rose Garden

February Photofest
Sinful Sunday


  1. Cara Thereon

    Gorgeous! I almost want to recreate the image.

  2. May

    Yes just a beautiful feast of colour and sights 😉

    We see you have avoided a thorny situation by placing a rose over a flower. 😉

  7. Jo

    This is delightfully multi-sensory; I can almost smell the roses and feel their velvety petals.

  8. Violet

    This is such a gorgeous image. I love the song lyrics too, so cheeky and indignant!

  9. Molly

    The deep red of the roses is quite striking against your skin and I feel like this is a really powerful image about how women are meant to smell like rose petals which is of course absolutely nonsense.

    And I hope you link this to a Valentines post somewhere. I really appreciated Fire and Honey’s spank on the arse on the topic this week (which I have been guilty of moaning about – the topic, not the spanking – lol) and I can’t help but think this is a perfect follow up. Which means it joins my upcoming #SoSS post. Thanks E40!!!

      Ah, thanks for the lovely comment. There are three roses shot – one I tweeted yesterday, this one and yes, there is one for my Wednesday Valentine’s Day/Feb PhotoFest post! Xx

    Ha. what’s not to like here – the intensity of the colour on the roses and the contrast with your skin is wonderful

  12. MPB

    A wonderful image, I love the contrasts of colour from the flowers and your skin. I really love roses, but have never worn them in this way……

    Beautiful, poised and sensual

    An utterly brilliant idea and beautifully realised. It has given me so much pleasure to look at this image. xx

  15. mmalflic

    Love the contrast of such stunning red against the flesh. Gorgeous!

  16. authorcpmcclennan

    Definitely, time to make it rain. Beautiful shot.

  17. lapsedcatholicwife

    This is just right, the colours, the lyrics and the cleverness

  18. Atiya

    brilliantly creative!
    hope they are not real cause i am a bit worried about the thorns

  19. Modesty Ablaze (@ablazingmodesty)

    Wonderfully clever . . . particularly avoiding the thorns !!!

    Absolutely perfect!

    Roses are my favorite flowers, especially red ones, they are lovely with you.

  22. sub-Bee

    I have been humming that song ever since you posted the other rose image on Twitter!
    What’s not to love about this, beautiful deep red, beautiful flowers and beautiful you.
