The Rose is one of the most intriguing and sought-after flowers adorning gardens and country sides the world over. These beauties, like music, have become standard elixirs of passion, serenading their way into our senses and into our gardens. Romantic hearts love roses and music–and all of their beautiful and fragrant expressions of affection. We even love the idea of love. In this article you will find the duet of music and roses in a bouquet of rose names.
In the 16th century poem Come Live with Me and be My Love, by poet and playwright Christopher Marlowe, he spoke about love’s many pleasures including “making beds of roses” and “melodious birds singing madrigals”.
Victor Hugo wrote: “How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.”
