Florets - Floral Quote - # 125 - by Jane Eastoe

"Older than we are but younger than dinosaurs, the rose has been linked with human beings across many millennia. It has inspired artists, sculptors, writers and poets, and is the subject of myth and legend. The rose can hint at political affiliation, sporting loyalty, national pride, beauty, virtue, romantic yearning, love, sex and secrecy, and it is also heavy with religious symbolism.Famous as a fragrance, used as a culinary flavouring and a source of vitamin C, and believed to have medicinal and therapeutic properties, the rose is one of our oldest cultivated flowers."
