Flowers of June

 Roses are one of the most popular types of flowers and the most well-known flower compared to other flowers. There is even a fossil record that roses existed even in prehistoric times. Roses were first planted in Asia about 5000 years ago.

Red is a color associated with the month of June and carries the meanings of love, respect and the message “I love you”. There are various legends about the flower. According to one Rose Flower; After God expelled Adam and Eve from paradise, he blushed with embarrassment. Cleopatra sprinkled rose petals on Mark Anthony's paths. Nero, on the other hand, had roses thrown from the roofs of the houses onto the roads during the festivals. In Roman mythology, there is a beautiful woman named Rhodante, and this woman is constantly pursued by men who want to get married. Although the woman does not show her face, some go so far as to enter their house. Goddess Diana is very angry at this situation. He turns Rhodante into a beautiful rose and her suitors into thorns that will never reach the precious petals of the flower. In the Middle Ages, a rose was hung from the ceiling of the assembly hall, which meant inviting everyone present to take an oath of secrecy. The origin of the Latin term “Sub Rosa” meaning under the rose is based on this phenomenon and is still used today. According to an English superstition, the shedding of leaves from a freshly cut red rose is considered bad luck.
