Lilies and Roses

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, May 21, 2009

May 21st is Lilies and Roses Day in the U.K.

Today’s Meme Express prompt is twofold. Take your pick, or use ‘em both:



Here are a few optional questions to get you started:

Do you grow lilies, roses or both?

What is your favorite flower?

Do you know anyone named Lily or Rose? (Describe her.)

Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create a drawing, a poem, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
