Searches tried - wikipedia and google on variants on 'english rose'
In my story, one of the characters is described as 'an English Rose' which I have described in one particular way (am not revealing this as I don't want to bias the answers). Trouble is, I am not sure I am remembering what the term actually means. I have a vague memory of what I remember thinking it meant - what physical characteristics a woman who has the 'English rose' look would actually have - hair, eyes, skin etc. but I am not sure if this is correct. Searches in various places seem to turn up different answers and so make me even more confused.
I got cold feet about this description early on but decided to leave it in to see what the critters said about it. None of them even mentioned it but I am not sure if this is because they believed it is correct or they simply missed it. So, can anyone please help me?
