Rose Vase Did you know that June was Rose Month? No other monikers, like “Appreciation” or “Planting”, just… Rose Month. So to cover all the bases, stop and smell the roses, work in your garden, and… just to be on the safe side, be nice to everyone named Rose. Even is she was your least favorite companion on Dr Who. But I digress! And to get us back on track, let’s talk about rose appreciation, and this lovely hand-built vase with rose decorations by unistaja. It’s a fitting tribute to a lovely, timeless flower!
Rose ATC Ornaments But maybe Rose Month is about looking at the world through rose-colored glasses? If that’s the case, it would be a lot easier to get the optimistic, happy, dreamy feeling if you were staring at the lovely rose ATC ornaments by cmarion3!
Rose Silhouette Or maybe Rose Month is about people named rose? What better way to make them feel loved (okay, other than a gift of a million dollars, or an all-expense paid holiday to an exotic location, or offering to clean out their sink drain traps, even the ones with the enormous wet hairballs stuck in them… but we’re talking about things you can and will do…) than to make something as simple and beautiful as this rose silhouette painting by NocturnalCreations? And by “simple” I certainly don’t mean easy, because I couldn’t do it, I just mean clean lines and good work and… I should just stop while I’m ahead. Or at least not as far behind. Ahem.
Rose photograph If all else fails, spend some time out in your garden (or your neighbor’s garden or a public garden if you don’t have rose bushes!) and take a gander at the roses. Maybe even snap a lovely picture or two, like this one by bhghatesyou before you run back in the house screaming because a bee flew within ten feet of you, then collapse from the heat and exertion to scratch your legs where the swarm of ants crawled up and bit you. … or maybe that’s just me.

However you choose to celebrate Rose Month, I hope it’s a stinging-insect-free way!
