Romantica Rose..

Born in Provence in the south of France and steeped in romantic history this unique family of modern hybrid roses has the charm of old-fashioned flowers. They awaken the senses with their regal voluptuous shapes and sensuous fragrances. The name “Romantica” reflects the French period of intense, emotional artistic creation in opera, art, music, and sculpture - hence the names of famous romantic authors, painters, and characters form operas. Both Louise and I have visited the nursery of the hybridizer, Meilland, in France and have seen some of what the future holds. The first in the Romantic series is the beautiful ‘Eden’

History Of Rose

The rose has always been valued for its beauty and has a long history of symbolism. The ancient Greeks and Romans identified the rose with their goddesses of love referred to as Aphrodite and Venus. In Rome a wild rose would be placed on the door of a room where secret or confidential matters were discussed. The phrase sub rosa, or "under the rose", means to keep a secret — derived from this ancient Roman practice.

Early Christians identified the five petals of the rose with the five wounds of Christ. Despite this interpretation, their leaders were hesitant to adopt it because of its association with Roman excesses and pagan ritual. The red rose was eventually adopted as a symbol of the blood of the Christian martyrs. Roses also later came to be associated with the Virgin Mary.

Rose culture came into its own in Europe in the 1800s with the introduction of perpetual blooming roses from China. There are currently thousands of varieties of roses developed for bloom shape, size, fragrance and even for lack of prickles.

Like The Rose....

Every little word
With every lesson learned
I think I know why hearts are made of stone
Every little pain
Fans a bitter flame
Nothing stops me loving you

Can't you see that we belong
Oh how I want it to be
So tell me do you feel the way I feel

Baby like the rose
Oh darling you put colour in my life
Baby take my heart forever
Cause I don't wanna be afraid
No no

Turn another page
The story will never fade
Sleep with thoughts of you until daylight
And when you're far away
Forever love will stay
Keep this loving feeling deep inside

Can't you see that we belong
Oh how I want it to be
So tell me do you I feel the way I feel

Cos you're the colour in my life

Beauty is picturesque
Speaks for itself

Always fresh upon the eyes
Keeping a pose of pure divine
Beauty evokes

With a bounty of great beauty
Shows affectionate feelings
Has a unique power

Perfuming a scent all its own
So, sweet and light

As it whispers of passion
Breathes of love

Rose, is fragile and delicate
Love can hurt
An inspiration

Rose, a token of great love
An inspiration

A rose is a perennial flower shrub or vine of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae, that contains over 100 species and comes in a variety of colours. The species form a group of erect shrubs, and climbing or trailing plants, with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Most are native to Asia, with smaller numbers of species native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa. Natives, cultivars and hybrids are all widely grown for their beauty and fragrance. The leaves are alternate and pinnately compound, with sharply toothed oval-shaped leaflets. The plant's fleshy edible fruit, which ripens in the late summer through autumn, is called a rose hip. Rose plants range in size from compact, miniature roses, to climbers that can reach 7 meters in height. Species from different parts of the world easily hybridize, which has given rise to the many types of garden roses. The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin, rosa, which was borrowed from Oscan, from Greek rhodion (Aeolic wrodion), from Old Persian wurdi "flower" (cf.Avest. warda, Sogdian ward, Parthian wâr). Attar of rose is the steam-extracted essential oil from rose flowers that has been used in perfumes for centuries. Rose water, made from the rose oil, is widely used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine. The French are known for their rose syrup, most commonly made from an extract of rose petals. In the United States, this French rose syrup is used to make rose scones and marshmallows. Rose hips are occasionally made into jam, jelly, and marmalade, or are brewed for tea, primarily for their high Vitamin C content. They are also pressed and filtered to make rose hip syrup. Rose hips are also used to produce Rose hip seed oil, which is used in skin products and some makeup products.
