Number of Roses
This is the strongest emotion. It says "I Love you" or "I love you still". It shows deepest affection and utmost devotion but also 'simplicity': the simplicity of one.
This indicates two people joined as one. Two roses with their stems wired together used to signify a coming engagement or marriage.
This stood for the 'need to be loved'.
This number of the same roses in a bouquet represented the 'secret admirer' or 'You have a secret admirer'.
A bouquet of thirty-six roses signifies the start of a full blown romance.
One Hundred Roses:
This rather large bouquet would represent an undying love. Love until death, or a hundred years, whatever came first!
One Hundred and Eight Roses:
This, it is suggested, represents a marriage proposal although you would hope someone also gives you a very large vase!
Three Hundred and Sixty-Five Roses:
Well, you guessed it, one for every day of the year. Rather over the top I would think but on the other hand, marry them right away because they are either very wealthy or they are a Rosarian with a very large rose garden! (hopefully both.)
Roses have a meaning and the number has significance, but be careful of the withered rose bouquet of any number!
You probably should have offered a rose-hip spa treatment, because according to this "withered" offering, you made "No Impression"!
Using flowers to convey meaning has been traditional for centuries but the meaning of number of roses became a strict code, a secret language. for the Victorians.
artist and a person whose
favorite flowers are Roses
& Tulips, it has captured my
Imagination. I could see
myself sitting in your
garden just painting away.
It's breath taking.
Kindest Regards, Rachel
