For the Love of Roses

1 Nov

Is is nothing more than by chance that arguably the world’s most beautiful flower has thorns?

I’m speaking of course of the rose!

Why have they been chosen as symbols of love? Could it be that their thorns are symbolic of the hazards of love and the vulnerability that such an intense emotion creates?

Is it that their exquisite beauty is paralleled by the all-encompassing wonder of genuine love?

Whatever the reason, is it any wonder that the perfection of this flower ignites visions of love?
