A rose by any other name

“That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet.”

– William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Roses at Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire, June 2020

The words of Shakespeare are often misquoted, and we can blame Captain Kirk for popularising this misquote: “A rose but any other name smells just as sweet”.

Over to you now.

  1. Having watched the National’s modern Romeo & Juliet last week I was up to date with the quote and it reminded me again of the marvellous performances I saw. Lovely images of my favourite flower.
