A Thousand Words In Idioms: The Rosy Version


Jientje at Heaven Is In Belgium hosts A  Thousand Words In Idioms on Wednesdays wherein she asks participants to illustrate an idiom with a photo.

'Tis the last rose of summer...

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

This is a line taken from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and means that it doesn’t matter what you call a thing, its essence is the same. This photo is from a few years ago and is one of my favorites. It had rained the night before and I noticed this especially dewy rose as I walked up the driveway after taking Jesse to school.


Everything’s coming up roses.

This means that everything is going really well. This photo is from a year ot two ago as well, a bouquet my son Jason bought for me unexpectedly.

You can see more illustated idioms and even join in the fun at Jientje‘s.

  1. Well done my friend. I love that picture of the first rose. It’s remarkable. Great idioms and the pictures so say it all 🙂 You know Barbara, I think it was you that first went to a theme on this meme and now more and more people are doing that. I love it 🙂
