Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, but are they?

Hello friends, happy Saturday. Today for flowers on a Saturday I thought I would share these gorgeous rained upon roses. Don’t you just love roses? I know I do. Roses always remind me of love. Or a gift of love.

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue:

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, Sugar Is Sweet And So Are You. Remember this very old Valentine’s Day verse?

A classic.

Another version of this rhyme is, the rose is red, the violet’s blue, the honey’s sweet, and so are you.

I remember making my own version up of this for my valentine’s day poem book when I was younger. I still have this book too. Somewhere!!

Roses maybe red, but are violets really blue? did you know that violets are closer to purple? Haha!!

What colour are your favourite roses? I think mine have to be red. I do adore pink and cream ones too. In-fact, I love them all.
