Rose Flowers

Rose is the only flower which when rearranged spells Eros, the god of LOVE. Through ages rose flower as the metaphor of love has bewitched every romantic soul on the earth. "A relationship is like a rose, How long it lasts, no one knows; Love can erase an awful past, Love can be yours, you'll see at last; To feel that love, it makes you sigh, To have it

leave, you'd rather die; You hope you've found that special rose, 'Cause you love and care for the one you chose." Since time immemorial, roses are love's truest language. They express the heartfelt sentiments which words alone can't. They have a language of their own. As gifts they are capable of expressing all shades of feelings and passions. The rose is especially noted, as it is the archetypal flower. For the world of romantics, rose flowers whisper warm passions, gentle embrace, undying passion and togetherness. There is nothing better than a bunch of rose flowers to make that special person in your life feel special.

The rose is more than just a beautiful and a famous flower as it is the national flower of England and the United States. England Rugby and the Rugby Football Union are symbolized by the rose flower. The white rose is the provincial flower of Yorkshire and the red rose is of Lancashire in England and of Alberta is the wild rose. Roses are traditional signs of many goddesses. One of the Hindu gods, Vishnu, created his bride from rose petals. The rose was sacred to a number of goddesses, for instance Isis and Aphrodite and is often used as a symbol of the Virgin Mary. Early Christians identified the five petals of the rose with the five wounds of Christ.

Different colored roses have different meanings which are deeply rooted in age old traditions. Through the ages, white rose signified purity and secrecy. During Medieval times, if people conversed beneath a white rose indicated the confidential nature of the conversation. In the sixteenth century, the Pope declared that a rose should be carved into confessional booths to symbolize confidentiality and privacy. The Romans symbolized rose with virginity. They planted a white rose-bush on the burial sites of young women to symbolize their virginity and purity. Red roses signify "I love you", respect, courage and passionate feelings. Red roses were planted to respect good works; they were also frequently placed on the graves of dead lovers. Nothing better than a yellow rose can trumpet the joy and gladness of life. Yellow has also been linked to jealousy and infidelity. Pink Roses imply grace and gentility. In the Talmud, it is written that only pink roses would be allowed to blossom in Jerusalem, and thus they came to symbolize paradise. Deep pink is associated with gratitude where as light pink with admiration and sympathy. Orange or coral represents enthusiasm and desire.

Roses have been represented in countless works of art from classical paintings to modern day fiction and music. "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." This immortal line captures the feelings harbored by Juliet for Romeo.

Rose Flowers have an early association with pagan rituals and mythologies. In some pagan mythologies, no ghostly creatures can cross the path of a wild rose. It was thought that to place a wild rose on a coffin of a recently deceased person would prevent them from rising again. In Celtic folk legends, a wandering, screaming spirit can be silenced by presenting the spirit with a wild rose every new moon. Roses were used in very early times as a very potent ingredient in love philters. In Rome it was often customary to bless roses on "Rose Sunday". Muslims still believe that the first rose was formed from a tear of the prophet Mohammed, and it is further believed that on a certain day in the year the rose has a heart of gold. In Scotland, if a white rose bloomed in autumn it was a token of an early marriage. If a young girl had more than one lover, it is believed that she should take rose leaves and write the names of her lovers upon them before casting them into the wind. The last leaf to reach the ground would bear the name of the lover whom she should marry. Rose leaves thrown into a burning flame are said to give good luck.
