THE WHITE ROSE


Welcome to the World of Rose Gardening or Rose Gardening World.  Take time and smell the roses.  Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.  Here at Rose Gardening World, you’ll find rose articles that will educate you about roses – its history, rose culture, rose profiles and even rose verses all in one place.  So visit Rose Gardening World often. 

As I look out my window watching the blooms of “Moonstone”, and “John Paul II“, nodding in the autumn wind, they echo the feeling of the following verse:

A WHITE ROSE
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon
And the white rose is a dove,

But I send you a cream-white rosebud,
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.
