The beautiful rose. There is probably no other flower more symbolic of romance. Yet, its various colours purportedly convey not just the message of love but many other sentiments as well.
The gentle soft pink speaks to appreciation, grace and admiration, while white reflects purity and innocence. Appropriately the sunny yellow represents joy, gladness and new beginnings, while orange is desire and enthusiasm.
However, when it is love and passion that one hopes to inspire they need look no further than the elegant red rose.

Stopping at a market this past weekend, I was captivated by the fetching display of assorted bouquets and plants. With summer gardens a bittersweet memory it was nice to be reminded that the only thing better than a beautiful flower is a profusion of them.
