http://www.rosesandgardening.com/ - Ask any woman to name her favourite flower and, more often than not, you will find that her flower of choice is the rose. And why not? It is a symbol of eternal and ethereal beauty, as it is also a symbol of never-ending love. The red rose is the most popular variety of rose and has a rich and vivid history. From dashing knights on white stallions presenting it to their lady love, to the more modern concept of a single stemmed rose on ValentineĂ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day, the rose has come a long, long way.
