R is for...

Rose
The icon for romance. Roses for years have been the go to flower for Valentine's Day, Anniversary's and Just Because bouquets for that special someone. The red rose is the age old symbol for love and romance but what about the other rose colors?

They say that pink roses symbolize gratitude and appreciation while yellow shows joy and friendship. Purple tells the recipient that the sender has fallen for them while coral shows desire. If enthusiasm is what you are looking for, buy some orange or apricot roses. You can buy some peach roses for sympathy or gratitude and white roses for reverence and humility.

These color meanings might not be know to everyone but wouldn't you rather play it safe and send orange roses to your boss instead of purple?

I've never really given much thought to what the colors mean. Guess I should! :)
