The Meaning of Rose Colors

What does it mean to give someone a rose of a certain color?

Roses are red, roses are yellow and roses are pink, and that just covers the common colors. At a June flower show, my lens captured the show-stopping beauty of roses. Some of my best photos of those roses and flower arrangements are shown here.

These photos clearly show how roses are far more than just a Valentine's Day gift, they are perfect for every occasion whether it’s a friend, family member or sweetheart you wish to make smile, while helping explain what giving different color roses means.
