Yellow Roses


I looked up the meaning of yellow roses on Wikipedia and they seem to represent a lot of negative emotions: jealousy, infidelity, a broken heart, dying love and extreme betrayal. These roses were sent in 1902. The correspondence is full of news and finishes with affectionate kisses but is not signed.

You know, Anji, I always thought yellow roses meant friendship. I'm not sure where I heard that but it seems like something I've had in my head a long time. Perhaps it depends which country you're in?

Well these roses have red in them so must have some kind of passion in them lolThey are beautiful

I wonder too as they were so hot on flower meanings back then. I agree with the last writer that there is a lot of red in these roses so I wonder if the meaning is dynamically changed.

Isobel: You're right. I don't know why I only listed the negative meanings. What you say is true, a lot of beliefs change depending on the country.

A lady's Life: red and Yellow together "Joy, happiness and excitement"

Doris: Lots of secret codes in everyday things:
