|Through the ages, roses have been the center of the flower world.
They represent all that is good in life and of course, symbolize the emotion of love. The
story of the naming of the rose harkens back to the Greek Goddess Aphrodite. She gave the
name of rose in honor of her son Eros, the Greek god of Love. The rose was then presented
to Eros in hopes that it would always be the choice of lovers and the flower of romance.
Who knew it would become the flower of choice in modern civilization and continue to
symbolize love today?
Heres a fun word game for you. Start by rearranging the letters in the word rose. This will give you Eros. Eros = Rose = Love.
