A Rose For Your Thoughts?

Posted by Bethany at June 27, 2011
Happy Monday All,

Okay I'm loving my new background...the header is still something I'll have to toy with, but I love the rose background. Roses are my favorite flower (yeah you couldn't see that coming a mile away LOL).

I've actually gone to a website to check out the meanings of different kinds and colors of roses. Through various ways, I've confirmed most of what this website says.

It's a little blurry but those are roses
this is a picture of my wedding bouquet
Red roses generally mean love and desire, which is fantastic for me since I write fantasy/paranormal romance. (Although, if I find a lavender/purple rose background, I'll probably use that since purple roses mean fantasy).

Anyway, to see what I'm talking about, head over to this website and have a peek. Even if you're not a rose fanatic it's an interesting site.

Roses play an interesting role in romance and courtship. In the fairytale, Beauty & The Beast it's Beauty's desire for a rose that triggers her father to steal one of the Beast's roses and thus angering the Beast. 

So what is it about this flower that yells, "Romance!" For me I think the flower is beautiful. I love it's fragrance and I love it has so many meanings, colors and variations.

But what do you think is the reason a rose seems to yell, "Romance!" whenever it shows up?

Have A Marvelous Monday!

Thanks so much! I decided it was time for a change. I actually like this background much better than the original. As I learn more about how to operate this blog and everything I can do more and have more fun with it. Thank you for dropping by. Good to "see" you :-)

This IS lovely,Bethany...a nice 'welcome home' after a very nice trip to see my cousins.
I think roses say romance from their sultry fragrance and their can read a lot into all those petals, as well!
Good to be back reading your blog...and hey, the robins returned to their nest on my porch to raise a second brood!
