are Roses, Even at a Bargain Price
Through the ages, roses have symbolized
love, beauty, passion, and appreciation.
Ancient Romans believed roses grew where
the tears of Venus fell to the ground. According
to Greek mythology, it was Aphrodite who
gave the rose its name. Shakespeare refered
to roses more than fifty times in his writings.
Napoleon's wife Josephine adored them. French
explorer Samuel deChamplain brought the
first cultivated roses to North America
in the seventeenth century. And, today,
the rose is the official flower emblem of
the United States.
Traditionally, red roses convey love,
respect and courage. Yellow roses mean joy,
gladness and freedom. Pink and peach roses
symbolize gratitude, appreciation or admiration.
White roses denote reverence, secrecy, purity
and heavenly things, while red and white
roses together symbolize unity. But, the
most important meanings of roses may be
what they mean to the individual giver and
recipient. Because, every rose gift carries
its own individual meaning and personal
message between any two people who share
their ageless beauty.
