Key Requirements for Higher Google Page Rank

Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part I...

Don't You Love Me Anymore?

This rose starts as a light pink bud, but turns yellow with its edges remaining a light shade of pink. The brighter the sun the more yellow the rose is. In this case, the picture was taken during spring time in California, and we already had bright sun.



I've always heard that red roses stand for love, and yellow for friendship, but that was the extent of knowledge I had regarding rose colors and what it signifies. Recently, I came across some quick definitions of what the colors and stages of blooms meant from a garden magazine. It is something to ponder about.
A red rose bud stands for budding desire, while an open white rose asks, "Will you love me?" An open red rose means, "I'm full of love and desire," while an open yellow rose asks, "Don't you love me anymore?"


Now that I know an open yellow rose asks "Don't you love me anymore?" I'll make a point to reply to it the next time it blooms. Rose lovers also should know that roses signifies romance, even in B.C. times! Many royalties used roses to express love and or bring-on romance for a example, Cleopatra celebrated the rose as an aphrodisiac. Her bed was covered with fresh roses "daily". In 42 B.C. she had the floor carpeted with two feet of rose petals for a banquet held in honor of her lover, Mark Anthony. How's that for rose love?
