      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      Giving a bouquet of beautiful roses makes a clear statement:
      the receiver of the flowers is dear to the giver in some
      meaningful way. Different than giving just a bouquet of
      flowers, roses imply 'Hey, I really mean this!" The giver has
      made the effort to bestow what some see as the most beautiful
      and most splendid of flowers, one that for thousands of years
      has been the symbol of romance and a soother of the heart.

      Roses have been bred in a variety of colors, each with its
      particular meaning. Now, there are no hard and fast rules � few
      recipients will fault one for sending a beautiful bouquet of the
      'wrong' color! But knowing the meaning a certain hue can imply,
      and giving the appropriate roses, will make the gift all the
      more wonderful. Discovering the best way to express your love,
      affection, friendship, thankfulness, joy, or any other of a
      great multitude of gestures will make the receiver and the
      giver more fulfilled with act of giving. Let that someone
      special in your life know exactly how you feel about them, be
      they wife or husband, friend or lover, mom or dad, grandma or
      grandpa or your favorite hero of the day - there are no
      limitations when sending roses. So let's have a look at the
      wonderful array of colors and their meanings�

      Lover's Red
      Red roses show love, passion and respect. True red roses say "I
      love you" more than any other flower; deep red roses imply
      unconscious beauty, and that true love may be stronger than
      thorns. It happens that the perfect red rose is more difficult
      to grow than any other color � a reflection, perhaps, of the
      perfect love. Other particular colors of red have particular
      meanings as well: Amaranth red, long standing desire. Cardinal
      red, sublime desire. Carmine, deceitful desire. Fiery red,
      flames of passion.

      Sweet Pink
      Pink roses communicate happiness, appreciation, admiration, and
      friendship with grace and elegance. There is a sweetness about
      the gesture, like the way good friends appreciate one another,
      or that special feeling of a grandmother's care. Light pink is
      the more about the sharing of joy, whereas dark pink is more

      Soft Lavender
      Lavender roses, those with a soft purple hue, symbolize love at
      first sight and enchantment � perhaps with a need for

      Pure White
      White roses signify purity in many forms. Loyalty, purity,
      platonic love and spiritual love � a love of the soul. Bridal
      white means happy love. White roses can also signify secrecy
      reverence humility, innocence, or charm. Note that white roses
      can symbolize death in Asian cultures.

      Friendly Yellow
      Yellow roses in Victorian times meant jealousy, though today
      yellow shows "I care". The color is that of familiar love and
      domestic happiness � that of friendship, joy, gladness or
      freedom. The yellow rose is also sometimes given in sympathy.

      Happy Coral and Orange
      Coral roses, of a beautiful orange-pink color, imply a bright
      desire. Not quite as 'lusty' as the deep red, but more of like
      "We can (or do) spend happy times together".

      The Crone's Black
      Do black roses really exist? Well, there are very deep colors
      of red, and roses can be dyed. And their meaning depends on
      whom you ask: some say they are symbol of death, and can be
      given as an ominous symbol. Others say they represent the death
      of old habits or patterns, and symbolize rebirth�it seems one
      should know the receiver when giving this color!

      Fantasy Blue
      Similar black, no true blue roses are grown. They are a fantasy
      color, created through the dying of the flowers themselves, or
      the adding of a dye to the bark at the shrub's roots. And like
      the surreal color they are, blue represents wonder and dreamy

      Mixing rose colors is always a wonderful option � mixing the
      hues allows one to express feelings in a very personal way. A
      few "standard" mixes are: White and red to signify unity; red
      and yellow roses together say "Congratulations!"; yellow and
      orange in combination imply passionate thoughts.

      Other Messages From Roses: A single rose denotes "I still love
      you", and a bouquet of roses in full bloom expresses the same
      sentiment in grand fasion; two roses of any color taped or
      wired together signify a commitment or forthcoming marriage;
      giving rose buds shows appreciation for youth and beauty.

      With roses and flowers there are no limitations as to what can
      be expressed. The colors of the different types of roses all
      have their unique place the history of human expression.
      Knowing the specific meaning of a rose only enhances the
      experience of sending and receiving them as a glorious and
      appreciated gift.
