Rambling Roses of Summer

Spring is in the air! Since I seem to be the appointed white rose fairy of legend and lore, my post Flowers and herbs



Roses and Meanings



RED ROSE: proclaims “I love you”and is the ultimate symbol of romantic love and enduring passion



YELLOW ROSE: indicates friendship and are also appropriate for graduations, newlyweds, Texans and new mothers



PALE PINK ROSE: depicts grace, gratitude and gentleness, a joy to behold. They also express happiness and fun



DEEP PINK ROSE: say thank you



LAVENDAR OR LILAC ROSE: indicates the sender has fallen in love at first sight with the recipient and is enchanted



WHITE ROSE: pure white roses are a symbol of truth and innocence. They also send other messages “I miss you” and “You’re heavenly”



CORAL ROSE: express one thing with their passionate color—desire



PEACH ROSE: speak of appreciation, gratitude and also sympathy



ORANGE ROSE: express enthusiasm and desire on the part of the sender



DEAD ROSE: regardless of their color, dead roses scream it’s over loud and clear



MIXED ROSES:

PINK AND WHITE: symbolize peace and harmony

RED AND YELLOW: symbolize happiness and celebration

RED AND WHITE: symbolize bonding and harmony



ONE SINGLE RED ROSE: I love you but I’m not going to go broke telling you



TWO ROSES ENTWINED: An engagement or wedding is imminent
