Roses for June

rosesJune is special for so many reasons.

With school letting out, kids are liberated and looking forward to a long summer. Father’s Day is coming up, and many weddings will take place. In fact, June is one of the most popular months for weddings across the country. The rose also has a very big part to play in June, for three main reasons. The first is connected to all those weddings – roses are often the flower of choice for brides, with the white rose being the most frequent choice. Interestingly, in early history, the white rose was also considered the bloom that represented true love. Although the red rose eventually took over that honor, the white rose bouquet is still an iconic arrangement for wedding ceremonies.

This special day is simply to express admiration for the near perfect red rose, which is emblematic of love, passion and all things romantic. Whether you visit a rose garden or give a single red rose to the one you love, surprise them by knowing that June 12th holds such special meaning.

Of course, red or white might not be appropriate for everyone in your life, but never fear. The rose comes in such a wide spectrum of color that the right bouquet is easy to achieve – yellow roses for friendship, pink roses for admiration, orange roses for the excitement of a new relationship or purple to say “I’m enchanted by you!”
