A Rose...

...by any other name would smell as sweet. I LOVE roses. :) They are one of my favorite flowers. They come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors, but I've never seen one I didn't like. :) The language of flowers, which was was popular in Victorian times, used different types and colors of flowers to relay secret messages between lovers. Included in the language are over 10 different color roses! A yellow rose stood for friendship, pink for grace, and red for true love. :) Even today a dozen red roses is still a very popular gift to show how much you love someone. The rose also happens to be the birth flower for June. And though I haven't found anything that says if a certain color is supposed to be used, I decided to make today's mini treasury a beautiful, bunch of deep red roses! Happy Birthday (once again) to all of you born in June! Enjoy! :)
