Terrific to consider images (sorry I didn't give you a rose -- then again, not so sorry, right!) but remember that anything we include should be copyright free  and work for men or women, LGBT, with or without kids, to be inclusive.

Thanks so much for coming up with ideas -- I have loads of roses left if you get desperate... :-)

Peeps, can you vote please and let us know?
