“Roses are Red, and Violets are Blue”, or so we have been told repetitively since we were children through rhymes with numerous variations. All roses are not Red though, but each rose does have a very specific color based on the color.
Meanings of Roses by Color
Red – Love
Pink – Happiness
Yellow – Friendship
White – New Beginnings
Orange – Passion
Lavender – Love at First Sight
Red Rose Day
Just as in the childhood rhyme we have heard so many times, the rose of Love is red. This is also the Rose that is honored every June 12th with its very own holiday. While the origin of the holiday is not exactly known, most people suspect that it is in the middle of June because June is the month that holds so many weddings. Roses also hold a very nice bloom in the month of June. Luckily for anyone wanting to celebrate Red Rose Day this June 12th, there are many great Florists in the Longview area to help you find the perfect red rose!
