Don’t Buy Yellow Roses

yellow roseA word to the wise guys

It’s valentine’s Day on the 14th and your woman will be expecting (at the very least) some flowers. Roses are the traditional flower associated with this occasion but be careful about the colour!

According to the Victorian ‘language of flowers’ (the Floral Code) a deep red rose signifies “bashful shame” – which is not perhaps the message you want to convey to the lady, but it is at least better than giving her a peachy coloured rose, which means “sympathy”

Of course chances are your woman won’t know the Floral Code but in case she does, FFS don’t give her a bluidy yellow rose – the friggin thing says you just want to be friends 🙄
