Hmmmm.....I'm sooo jealous of Yellow Rose! ha! I thought yellow roses stood for friendship and red roses for passion. Of course the daisy is my favorite but then I bet you guessed that!

Now from my years as a floral dsigner I know the meaning of the yellow rose is friendship when given to another. I don't like the jealousy meaning, lol.

Happy Thursday!
