The rose has become an indispensable messenger.
But as a messenger, it can perplex us with its sometimes dubious
meanings; it speaks different languages with different colours and tints.
Maybe it's this filling-in-the-blanks that makes receiving a rose
rather a rousing saga.

The meanings of colours on roses intertwine,
so don't get too bogged down with accuracy, for no matter what,
the receiver still has to surmise according to their personal grasp of the
meaning. In any case, a card expressing your feelings would
clear any doubts.
