My mom loved roses and always enjoyed her fragrant rose garden. Here are a few samples of her favorite ones. Roses always remind me of her. One whiff and I am instantly transported to her garden and can see her gentle smile.
According to Wikipedia, the rose is a type of flowering shrub. Its name comes from the Latin word rosa. Roses belong to the family of plants called Rosaceae. All roses were originally wild and they come from several parts of the world, North America, Europe, northwest Africa and many parts of Asia and Oceania.
Over hundreds of years they have been specially bred to produce a wide variety of growing habits and a broad range of colours from dark red to white including as well yellow and a bluish/lilac colour. Many roses have a strong, pleasant scent. Most roses have thorns on their stems and they are able to tolerate a wide variety of growing conditions. The fruit of the rose is called a hip. Some roses have decorative hips.
Roses are widely used across the world as symbols of love, sympathy or sorrow.
