Roses called Victory : Weekly photo challenge


In the light of those terrible events of November 13 in Paris, I started thinking about victory … winners means losers.

This has been going on for ever.

When I was a child in Britain, there was a popular rhyme chanted around bonfires on Guy Fawkes Night.  Remember, remember, the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot … When I look at the rest of the verses, the words are chilling.

Right now, the only saving grace in this challenge using the word ‘victory’ that I can find,  is that there is a type of flower called Victory Roses.

This photo isn’t one of them. These not-long opened buds are just one of Nature’s everyday surprises in someone else’s garden  – each one beautiful, growing together, like friends.

  1. This is a tricky one Meg. I see the Government tempted to use war to end war and it doesn’t work. I don’t have an answer myself except “love your enemies, do good to those who hate you” and that still brings war!!!
