Being a voracious reader of Mills and Boon in my teen years where the writer had red roses in almost all her romantic stories no surprise then that I should too believe in red roses as a symbol of love. During our courtship years there used to be red roses exchanged which continued even in our married life but not for long. Marriage becomes stale over a period of time and red roses take a back seat. How important are red roses in your life?

Not important at all really but Vince often brought me home flowers when he was working.

Good that red roses have taken a back seat, now atleast they can bloom in their natural environment, instead of being fancy of us (human beings)....isnt that right

But do you know the more you trim a rose plant the better it will yield

Those who care do attach value to them

@allknowing there is value but I don't think exclusively in the romantic way as poets, painters, lyricists and greeting card companies or florists have commercialized those beautiful flowers to be demonstrative of an emotion a simple hug or phone call can also accomplish

@enlightenedpsych2 Just a hug or a phone call will last only for that moment but flowers do remain longer. The fact that this system of saying it with flowers continues to be the choice of so many shows they believe in it.

My husband still gets me flowers for no reason. I love red roses, but as long as he brings me flowers, I don't care what they are.

Flowers speak more than words. Getting them for any reason says a lot about his love for you.

Nice picture of red roses... do you still read Mills and Boons? I used to read them, especially when my love life was a little bit down... now I think I am too old for all the romances in there...

I have always loved roses of any color. I too was addicted to Mills and Boon in my teen years.

My husband had a tough time when we just got married I would compare him to all those lover boys in those stories
