Part of any Florist's life is dealing with death. Flowers and Funeral seem to go hand in hand.
Over the last few days I have made a number of arrangements and casket sprays, many of them with roses.
This got me to thinking, why do people choose roses? And luckily for me google provided the answer...
roses are a very common and appropriate funeral flower, and each color rose has a slightly different connotation. White roses are the ultimate symbol of spirituality, purity, and innocence. At a funeral, the classic deep red rose evokes love and grief. The yellow rose is often given by friends to show their bond. The rarer dark pink roses are used to express thankfulness to the deceased.
