"Oh, my luve's like a red, red rose, That's newly sprung in June; Oh, my luve's like the melodie That's sweetly played in tune." Quote by Robert Burns

What says, "I love you", more than red roses? What beautiful flowers red roses are. They may be the most romantic flowers on the planet. If you give or receive a dozen red roses for instance, what is that saying really? On the other hand, what a nice gift to give someone. It just that they would be in their "right" to think there may be some feelings there.

Give Red Roses as a Gift for Valentine's Day or any other Special Day

I recall my husband giving me some long stemmed red roses, before we were married one Valentine's Day. If you were ever wondering if this is a good idea or not to do, just know it is indeed a perfect Valentine's Day gift! Receiving a red rose Valentine's Day bouquet is something that will be remembered for years to come. Something very neat about that, is that I got the idea from my sister to dry those red roses to have long term. I still have them! All I did was hang them upside down on a peg, after gently wrapping a rubber band around the base. The dried perfectly. Since we have been married, I have been surprised again with red roses. Red roses are the perfect gift for a spouse or girlfriend, mother, aunt, grandmother or sister, etc.

This is a gallery of red roses that I have come across and enjoyed. I hope you also enjoy them in my photos.

Photos of Red Roses

Photos 1 - I just loved seeing these red roses all bunched together on a rosebush. It was like a ready to go bouquet almost. The color of a red rose goes far, and is so gorgeous against its own greenery. These would brighten up my day any day of the week.

Photo 2 - A single red rose, but more of a bright red than a deep colored crimson red. This red allows for so much brightness and reflection of light. It would seem like you could see these still on the cloudiest, even foggiest days, in the garden.

Photo 3 - Several unopened red rose buds with one rose in bloom. Just what a rose gardener wants to see, more buds coming, as a sign of a healthy plant bringing more beauty.

Photo 4 - I loved the curved, raised bed of roses here. Since we once tried to grow a rose garden in Texas, I have come to realize the value of a raised garden bed. This is true especially in particular types of heavy soils. This garden is lovely to me, and in this view shows some lovely red rose bushes in bloom.

Photo 5 - I love the light and shadows on this rose, but more than that I love the curvy waves of the petals. This is the kind of thing that makes a rose so beautiful to me. The unfurling of the curving petals. A thing of beauty in an of itself, in my opinion. Nature always amazes me.

Photo 6 - I love this unique red rose, that appears to have almost a white color on the back of the leaves, perhaps what could be called a "silvery" color. Even though not fully opened, you can see parts of the petals curling out. That is so pretty to me. A few raindrops linger here as well.

Photo 7 - This photos shows some red roses sharing the view with some pink rosebushes, and some very large trees. The red roses of course "hold their own" in such a setting.

* Doing this hub takes me way back to when I was a young girl. I have photos of my father and I picking roses in the backyard, to go take to my grandmother's grave. It sounds sad, but it really was a sweet and happy thing. Perhaps I didn't fully realize what all was going on, as I was only two or three.

Later, my grandparents on the other side of the family grew several roses in a rose garden. They were so pretty, and they would cut them and bring them in. This was all in California where you could grow many different kinds of roses. Since these times, my Mom, sister and I try to carry on the tradition of cutting a few roses, bringing them in and putting them in vases.
