Photo prompt round-up: Fragrant #writephoto


Pathways converging

Travellers meet at the heart

A single centre

Lovers and the weary called

To fragrant serenity


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor on a beautiful summer’s day, when the rose garden was in bloom. The Manor is the ‘big house’ in my village and draws visitors from across the world to see the artworks it holds, from portraits of Mme Pompadour to the Sleeping Beauty series in the tower. The gardens are spectacular all year round and include both wild and formal areas. Of the formal gardens, this corner is my favourite as it holds a collection of old-fashioned roses that fill the summer with colour, bees and perfume.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week. I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to create their own story from these prompts. I wish there was space to reblog all the contributions, as there are some beautiful pieces every week that I would love to reblog, but which come in after I have filled all the allocated slots.

All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links to read them and leave a comment for the author.

Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes.

Pingbacks do not always come through… and I can miss things too, so if you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.

A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows, as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

BmG logoAs there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details

Come and join in!

    What an amazing turn out. Anxiously awaiting this week’s prompt. I am heading to Alaska this afternoon so if you don’t hear from me I might be actually enjoying life instead of writing about it.

    Some very interesting responses as usual. I was surprised at the number of sad stories. But then the world is in a sad place right now, so maybe it’s just a reflection of that. (K)

    Your poetic words were so gentle. Wonderful way to end this beautiful prompt.
