    Rose trivia

    Post by oceanna on Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:49 am

    (Rose hips contain more Vitamin C than almost any other fruit or vegetable.)


    Roses
    •According to Biblical stories, there was a white rose that grew in the Garden of Eden and turned red as it blushed with shame upon Adam and Eve's fall from grace.

    •Roses were extensively grown in the Middle East during the Roman period, where they were used in food, as confetti at celebrations, for medicinal purposes, and as a source of perfume.

    •The rose was adopted as England’s flower emblem during the Civil War (1455-1485). Roses symbolized two warring factions in England. Red roses symbolized the Lancaster faction while white roses symbolized the York faction, this clash became known as the War of the Roses.

    I didn't check out your website yet, Oceanna....but I've bookmarked it

    My Iranian friends use rosewater in different ways, but one that I enjoy most is adding a splash of rosewater to a summer refreshment such as a mild lemonade or iced tea.

    I have a bottle of rosewater in my fridge but I always forget to use it. I must begin again!
