National Rose Month - the Flower of Love
RED: Known as the Lover's Rose, shades can go from light to deep crimson. What better Valentine's gift than red roses? Maybe with chocolates to add a special "romance" meaning?
YELLOW: Evokes a sense of warmth and friendship. In Victorian times, it symbolized jealousy!
PURPLE: Displays enchantment, and imagination...and love at first sight.
BLUE: Embodies a sense the impossible and of mystery while hoping for an extraordinary chance for the beginning of something new.
Whatever color you choose, you can't go wrong...except with black. No romance there. Just sorrow so stay away from them. Although, I'm sure some paranormal romances will feature these black roses as the choice of shade for dark tales!
