Wish Your Love On Rose Month
Ever wondered why you always got those dark crimson roses from your beloved or your spouse on Valentine’s Day or on your anniversary ? Do you know why people often carry white roses to funerals ? Remember how you longed for the bright yellow ones, in those out-of-the-world ecstatic moments ? Well, here’s the reason—each color of rose has a different story to tell and each story has a unique occasion. As the most enduring social emblem of beauty and love, roses inspire various feelings in both the receiver and the giver. And when it’s the month of June, you got to celebrate with these lovely roses of various shades to let your dear ones know how much you care. But why June ? Is that what you ask ? Well, June is the Rose Month—a month to sweeten up your sweetheart, warm up your buddies and cozy up to your folks at home with the roses or the rosy wishes !

Legend about the color of the rose can also be traced back to Roman myths. As Goddess Venus, the deity of love, grieved her lost beloved Adonis, white roses are said to have grown from her tears. Quite heart-rending that ! In Islam, the rose signifies the blood of Prophet Mohammed and his two sons. Some of the expressions symbolized by the different types of roses and their colors are:

* red rose: love/ beauty/ courage/ respect
* a single red rose: to say "I love you"
* white rose: purity/ humility/ silence/ divinity
* white bridal rose: joyful love
* pink rose: state of grace/ gentility
* dark pink rose: praise/ thankfulness
* yellow rose: friendship/ joy/ promise of a new beginning/ rapture
* yellow rose with red tip: friendship/ feeling new love
* orange rose: exuberance/ desire
* red and white together: togetherness
* red and yellow together: delight and happiness
* peach rose: gratefulness, humility
* coral rose: desire
* lavender rose: love at first sight
* black rose: death/ bidding adieu
* blue rose: love beyond reach
* red rosebud: beauty and purity
* white rosebud: virginity
* thornless rose: to say "love at first sight"
* hybrid tea-rose: to say "you will always be there in my mind"
* two roses taped together: engaged and heralding marriage

A huge list, of course ! And interesting too ! Now that was for the roses. But did you know what the rosebuds signify ? Well, it’s said that the rosebuds stand for babies (young life) and are sometimes used at weddings (start of new life) and funerals (a closure) too. There are many stories about the colors of the roses. Each culture holds a unique story about the roses and their symbolism. But whatever the theories, just paint yourself in the colors of the rose when it’s the Rose Month
