Top Ten Tuesday: Flowers on Black Backgrounds

What do you think?  Do you enjoy flowers on a black background?


  1. Great list! I really like that edition of Shakespeare’s Sonnets.

  2. Love these covers! I especially think the pink flowers on the Emma cover pop really well against that black backdrop!
