Love roseIt is a well known expression that “Diamonds are girl’s best friend”, but I think roses also fall in the same category.

If you are thinking of buying roses, Red seems to be the most popular color for Valentine’s Day, however for other occasions you may want to select your roses in a different color.

Today I will help you expand your horizons about the different colors of roses and their symbolism, so next time you are shopping for these beauties, you will feel more confident with your selection.

Then again, you can always select a bouquet of mixed colors, which is just as beautiful.

Orange rose

Orange rose is a symbol of passion, desire, enthusiasm, fervent romance, excitement.

    Hi SG!!

    Happy Valentine’s Day! I love the photo of the painted looking rose you have up top. Thanks for sharing all the meanings…I knew Yellow was friendship but I didnt know about the other colors. The purple rose is beautiful. Im actually not a big fan of roses…not my favorite flower. I love lilies, calla lilies, hydrangeas, daises, gerber daises, and tulips! We’re using hydrangeas and calla lilies for our wedding!! Have a great weekend!

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your soon to be hubby!!!
    I love all flowers, but I prefer growing them rather than watching them die in a vase.
    Roses are very expensive around Valentine as well, so I feel for those young fellows trying to impress a girl..

    I can’t wait to see your wedding pictures on your website…

    Sounds like you had a great V-day with no snow.
    I too love to grow roses rather then buy them. Prices are not too bad here – 1 doz 19.99. And congrats on your will power for the diet. I think I love sweets to much to try it…..especially with Fat Tuesday!
    Keep it Sweet,

    You bake so often, so it would be quite difficult to deprive yourself of sweets.
    Actually, I am in the phase where I could have a couple of small cookies, but I try not to until I reach me goal.
    I’m telling you I had a hard time looking at your delicious looking pachki and not salivating.
    Wow…I have seen some roses at $75doz…..ouch.
