Do  you speak the language?  In Victorian times sending flowers was a serious matter of the heart. Emotions were grown on the petals of roses.

Today I 'd like to send you all, a  rose of happiness and jovialaity...May your day be filled with  sunshine.

 AND ..... Just incase you're picking flowers or thinking about  sending  flowers  as a gift here's  a  sampling list of rose colors and their meanings ...  HAVE FUN !!!

PINK: respresents grace, elegance and gentleness.

LIGHT PINK:  stands for gratitude and appreciation.

WHITE ROSES:  innocence, purity, reverence and humility, but can also mean silence and secrecy.

RED AND WHITE : together or WHITE ROSES TIPPED IN RED: symbolize unity

YELLOW ROSES: denotes jealousy in Victorian times but are now given to express joy friendship, gladness and freedom.

RED AND YELLOW ROSES:  together signify happiness and joviality.

CORAL and ORANGE ROSES : convey enthusiasm and desire  and say ," I am proud of you ".

BLUE ROSES: are associated with fantasy, the impossible, miracles and new possibilities as no blue roses truly exist in nature.
