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

Go for it!! Xx

Yes just a beautiful feast of colour and sights 😉

Such rich colours and such a beautiful and inviting pose.

This is fucking stunning!

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

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

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

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

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

Love the contrast of such stunning red against the flesh. Gorgeous!
February 11, 2018 at 4:24 pm
Definitely, time to make it rain. Beautiful shot.

This is just right, the colours, the lyrics and the cleverness
February 11, 2018 at 5:55 pm
hope they are not real cause i am a bit worried about the thorns

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

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

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.
