Another Day, Another Flower – 21

Roses come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They are the universal symbol of love. The tradition of giving flowers carried on to the Middle Ages, especially among the English and the French. It is believed that the tradition of giving a meaning to each type of flower was started in Europe after it was witnessed being done in Turkey. The Victorians widely practiced this custom as well. Classically, roses symbolize love and romance however their meaning can extend way beyond that. The red rose is a universal symbol of love across many cultures but beyond that, the rose can symbolize a variety of feelings depending on their variety, color and number. Roses symbolize suffering: Christian iconography uses the red rose as a symbol of Jesus Christ’s bodily suffering, as well as the blood of other saints such as Alban. Yet roses also symbolize the peace that awaits people in the next world.

      1. Here comes a big secret: I don’t have a sense of smell – lost it after a serious car accident many years ago. Since then, my sense of taste has compensated to a great extent, so I am not complaining. Red roses taste raspberries when I lick the petals.. I think that’s why rose jam and rose liqueur are made only with red roses. 🌹😻
