Roses are all about the flower.
For more than one century, roses have been considered the legitimate leaders in the flower market, the queens of the podium and the royal gift. If you decide to order a bouquet of roses from experienced florists and present it to your loved one, then you have made the right choice.
The culture of selection and cultivation of roses is rooted in antiquity, and in some ancient treatises dating back to the 4th century BC, this flower is mentioned. Excavations carried out in Asia and Europe say that the rose existed on earth before the appearance of man, 30 million years before him.
Gradually, it was cultivated, new varieties were grown, and according to some legends, the rose came to Europe from China. Other chronicles say that this flower came from the territory of the East, in particular Persia - it is it that is translated from the ancient language as a garden of roses. The Prophet Muhammad himself ascended to heaven on the buds of roses, and Allah himself created this amazing flower. However, until recently, our ancestors did not particularly favor this plant in their home - it was believed that she drives away gentlemen from the girl, bringing on her a crown of celibacy.
The famous Cleopatra, meeting Mark Antony, lined his path with rose petals. She also sprinkled the flowers of her wreath with poison, and when Antony showered rose petals from her living decoration on his cup and wanted to drink, she knocked it out of her hands. After all, she loved him so much that she would not let him drink the poisoned wine.
So, in the history of floriculture, the rose is considered the most beautiful, which is called La France, that is, France and expresses the sincerity of this state towards Russia. At the death of Emperor Alexander 3, it was his coffin that was decorated with a wreath of buds of this variety of roses.
The poetess Anna Akhmatova considered this flower to be her muse, but the famous singers Britney Spears and Madonna perceive it as a symbol of innocence and purity. In honor of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, singer Paul Macartney even varieties of roses were named.
As a symbol of spring and beauty, sincere love, the rose is also found in many works. Since the Roman era, references to her can be found in the works of Virgil and Horace, who paid their praises to her. Gradually, Eastern poets, such as Byron, took over their admiration for the rose and displayed it in their creations.
No less tragic image of a flower can be found in French tragedians. For example, in Aragon, this flower is represented as a symbol of impossible and unreal love in the ode “Rose and Reseda”, and Jean Genet dedicated his first novel “The Miracle of the Rose” to her.
It was under the influence of Byron that Pushkin and Blok displayed the praise of the rose in verse. The latter in 1912 published his drama "Rose and Cross", and M. Tsvetaeva's friend Sofia Parnok mentioned this flower in her collection of creations "Roses of Pieria". In general, in Russian classics there are many odes and works dedicated to the rose.
