“While in Victorian times, the yellow rose symbolized jealousy, today it represents friendship, joy and caring. A bouquet of these sun-filled blossoms conveys warmth, gladness and affection.”
(The symbolism of the yellow rose according to the Teleflora website.)
This week my husband brought home this perfect yellow rose. It has been brightening up my week, sitting on my desk while I have spent endless hours working on the computer. It is interesting how one of the yellow rose’s meanings is “joy”as the rose has certainly brought a lot of joy over recent days, brightening our lives during a cold and grim wintry week.
