|Soft Pink Rose|
|Salmon Pink Rose|
As you can tell by the amount of photographs, roses are one of my favour flowers. Full of nostalgia for long summers days past, when as a child I would collect the petals and put them in water, thinking I could make perfume.
The rose symbolises love and affection. Red roses mean love, passion, beauty and perfection and white roses mean innocence, purity and remembrance.
I love pink roses, which have to be scented. I can't understand the purpose of a rose without scent though.
It's impossible to walk by a rose without first having a sniff and it's so disappointing when there is no scent, however beautiful the bloom.
Over the next few weeks, is the best time for the beautiful, graceful rose. Keep dead heading them, to keep them going as long as possible and enjoy them whilst they're here.
