Sunday Wonders - R

R is for Romance.

The word just popped into my head yesterday when I was out in the garden. 

The shy girls in their pink frocks...

hiding behind the lacy curtains...

waiting to accept the proffered red rose bud.

Is this really my idea of romance?   After a little think, the answer is 'no'.

I think I would prefer a little more adventure and open air - heading into the unknown. 
What  says romance to you?

I like what you saw- it makes sense! Though I would never have 'seen' it- I don't have the creative eye.

Romance to me is someone who understands me or puts forth effort in that direction and surprises me with offers of quiet walks or a reading of poetry or a glass of Bailey's in front of the fire. Something like that.

I love those pure, bright white flowers!! And at first quick glance, that rosebud looks like lips! I think romance to me might be getting in a car with your sweetie, one that has that new car smell. Then driving at night to a 50's type drive through burger place, then to an overlook where you can see all the city lights twinkling, and the moon above. Kind of sounds like "Happy Days"! Maybe I'd even take the Fonz!

Love the flower pictures. Romance to me is a walk in the woods, ideally in the fall with the leaves in all their glory.
