Flower of the Month

One of the earliest flowers know to man, symbolize love magic, hope, passion. The rose represents beauty and perfection. The name rose comes from the Latin word rosa which means red.

Nebuchadnezzar used roses to decorate his palace. They were grown for perfume oil in Persia. The Greeks associated roses with the blood of Aphrodite's beloved Adonis.

Red Roses – I love you
Pink Roses – Elegance, grace, frivolity
Yellow Roses – Friendship, joy
Peach Roses – Desire, excitement
