Camera Lucida ~ “ROSE”

This week’s theme for the Camera Lucida Photo Challenge is “ROSE”

Whenever I hear the word Rose this is what I think of:

My Paternal Grandmother Rose!

My Paternal Grandmother Rose!

This is my Grandmother Rose, my father’s mother.

She is no longer with us but I remember her as a quiet, gentle woman.  She seemed shy and reserved but always pleasant and kind.  As a child I did not see her often as she lived in another state, but I do remember being with her at holidays and weddings.  I see some of her traits in my father, as he too is a gentle, caring soul.

This is my interpretation of Rose..

A Rose by any other name would be Grandmother!!!

A Rose is not kind but she was,

A Rose does not smile but she does.

A Rose has a way

Of making your day,

Whether the Roses are Flowers or Grandmas!

  2. Aw! Rose, or the name Rosie, is the most popular name for the dolls in my nursery, by the little kids! Whenever they play mummies and daddies, I ask what their baby is called,mans it’s almost guaranteed there is a Rose there in the name somewhere!
