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.
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.
