June 12: Red Rose Day

June 12 is Red Rose Day, and there’s only one way to celebrate: find yourself a beautiful red rose, and enjoy it. Look at it, smell it, touch it, give it to that special someone, give one to everyone you see (just don’t be too creepy!), and celebrate with red roses.

Some quotes to get you through the day:

“Stop and smell the roses.”

~Anonymous

“Oh, my luve is like a red, red rose,
That’s newly sprung in June.”

~”A Red, Red Rose” by Robert Burns

“I see trees of green,
Red roses too,
I see them bloom
For me and you,
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.”

~as sung by Louis Armstrong

“A single flow’r he sent me, since we met.
All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet –
One perfect rose.”

~“One Perfect Rose” by Dorothy¬†(read the whole poem, it’s amazing!)

“See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.”

~ Song of Songs 2:11-12
