Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry on Top…love and beauty

Back from two wonderful weeks in France and into my regular routine which, of course, includes my Weekly Photo Challenge in on Friday, rather than Saturday.  It was odd to look for the challenge at 6 pm, rather than the 11 am it arrives here at home.  No matter the time, the theme this week is “Cherry on Top“, a detail that makes all the difference. Official definition?  ““A desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.”

My trip to France was filled with photos that could show the gilding of the lily or the cherry on top, but this unadulterated photo of a dew-bedecked rose will do the job nicely, I think.  Despite one very large issue, the whole trip went extremely well and I’m full of thanks and joy when I look back on it.  Red roses mean love and beauty and my trip was full of both and so, blessedly, was my home-coming.


  1. Nice one Janet. Pondering my own effort at the mo. And welcome home (from afar).

  2. Sandra says:

    Beautiful pic, Janet. Glad you’re home safely.

  9. Su Leslie says:

    Beautiful image. And I’m so glad you enjoyed your trip and got home safely.

    • Thanks, Su. So many bad things going on these days that we should be thankful every time we travel safely. Of course, the biggest chance of death or injury is from driving, so maybe flying’s a good bet!


      • Su Leslie says:

        True. Travel has become more fraught. I’m less and less inclined to do long-haul stuff any more (which effectively keeps me in the Pacific). Fear ( well-founded or otherwise) has made flying so much less enjoyable, and the airlines’ constant decreasing of personal space within planes means that comfort comes at a huge cost.
