Black roses??

I left black roses out on purpose, but not for the reason many of you may think.

Black roses can have many different meanings, therefore, I didn't address them in my Valentine's post.  With so many people asking about them, I figured I should do a quick addendum.

Many people say that black represents death and can therefore be meant as vengeance towards a foe.  Others see the black roses as the death of old habits and signaling rebirth.  It can also be associated with mourning or sadness.  It can be given in love as a symbol of tragic love, dying love, or the end of a relationship.

Unless you are goth or trying to be funny, with so many meanings the black rose is not the ideal rose to send to anyone!

Yours truly,

Gomez (Big Daddy)
