It might not have seemed like peaches and roses at the beginning

Philadelphia Phillies’ Kyle Schwarber was describing how the Phillies bonded as a team this year: “It might not have seemed like peaches and roses at the beginning…but everyone was confident and we had each other’s backs through the whole thing.”

It’s a nice congruent conflation of “peaches and cream” and “a bed of roses”, both describing an easy, comfortable situation. Yes, I posted this malaphor last year but because this one is so timely (World Series) I thought it only appropriate to post again. https://malaphors.com/2021/03/05/its-all-peaches-and-roses/ A tip of the hat to Linda Bernstein for catching this one! Go Phils!
