Since tomorrow is Valentines Day, I’ve got roses on my mind. And, I found some interesting facts I’d like to share. Do you think about what color of roses your loved one will send you? I don’t really care what color they are, I just enjoy getting them. However, I guess each color has a meaning. Here are a few of them.
Red Rose. The most popular of all rose colors, red roses symbolize deep love, romance and passion. The red rose has long been a symbol of beauty and perfection and can also symbolize courage. A dark red or burgundy rose depicts a beauty that is uncontrived and unadorned.
