Valentine Box 07
Posted on 14 February 2012
Happy Valentine’s Day to all lovers of the world! Have a great romantic day!
My gift to you is a bouquet of roses:
Rose is one of the most popular flower and one of the most powerful symbol of Valentine’s Day. Since time immemorial rose flower has been a favorite of poets and romantics at heart. For them, the lovely rose stand for beauty, passion and love.
There is an interesting story behind the legend of Valentine’s Day Rose. It is said that once a beautiful maiden by the name of Rodanthe was pursued by a number of impassioned suitors. In their desperate pursuit the lovers broke the doors of Rodanthe’s house. This enraged goddess Diana. She turned Rodanthe into a flower and her suitors into thorns.
According to a popular legend in Rome once Cupid was carrying a vase of sweet nectar to the Gods on Mount Olympus and some nectar spilled on the ground. From the spot where the nectar fell emerged the beautiful Rose flower.
An interesting point to notice is that if the letters of the word ‘rose’ are rearranged, it comes out to Eros – the God of Love. Red roses are also considered to be a symbol of love and passion and the favorite flower of Venus – the Goddess of Love.
Just see here how Terri Moore prepared a gorgeous one:
