White Roses

There is a rose bed at the back left of the garden, many of the roses were gifted to my parents for anniversaries and so on.   Nature in the Home’s theme is ‘white’ this week and these are the only white flowers in the garden right now.  This stem and flowers were on the ground, the weight of the flowers after the rain was too much for the spindly stem by the looks of it.

Rose colours often have symbolic associations, white roses  are for purity, innocence, peace, reverence and humility. I feel sure there must be  a song out there about white roses, anybody know it?
