Single red rose – I love you

Roses have a long and colorful history. They have been symbols of love, beauty, war. Flowers were a Victorian-era means of communication. They can be traced back as far as 35 million years old.

I love roses; a single rose can say as much as a fist full.

  • A path of rose petals is lover’s path to an evening filled with passion. Their sweet scent permeates the air so intoxicating, while others are only pleasing to your sight.
  • A bubble bath dappled with rose petals enhanced by candle light feels like a beautiful indulgence.
  • Placing petals on the blades of your ceiling fan is a nice surprise for your sweetheart.
  • Cover the bed in petals while they sleep, or write a message.
  • Put inside a card or letter.
  • Add a few to a sack lunch, purse, pocket or briefcase.
  • Two of my favorites, USPS several dozen red rose petals in a large manila envelope , before they receive it, let them know to sit on the floor, have them close their eyes “no peeking “, open the envelope hold it over their head and turn upside down.
  • And leaving a long stem rose on a friends front step in the middle of the night.
  • My all time favorite. My daughter stopping by my work and leaving a note and red rose on my seat, with instructions to listen to certain song on the cd she had put in my cd player. I followed her directions, smelling the sweet scent of my flower, listening to the words (Celine Dion because you loved me) crying uncontrollably like a baby, something I will hold in my heart forever.

Say it with Roses,

Affectionately yours,
