Re: World's First Real Blue Roses

Isn't every flower the "I just spent money on you so I better get laid" flower?

Well I would hope not. I, for one, am not that easy. Not that I don't like flowers, I'm just saying don't expect to get laid because of them.

Re: World's First Real Blue Roses

I just don't understand any other motivation for giving someone the reproductive organs of another species.

Na.. at least not for me.. I didn't had it in mind as i gave you Jorge

I'm more for giving living flowers like potted plants, and not cutting and kill something that looks good but is way better alive where it had been.

Re: World's First Real Blue Roses

^I agree I think getting potted plants is far better than receiving cut flowers, tehn you can keep them for a long time! (^_^)

Living plants are a whole different story: I love getting plants. They're not simply the genitalia, and they're not dead. It's much better.

Agreed! Though my roommate would probably murder me if I got any more plants! My desk looks like a jungle! Yay plants!

No wonder I have always loved the blue rose, I wanted to see what it ment, cause your post reminded me I wanted to look it up.

Re: World's First Real Blue Roses

Do you really think the color pigments in plant genitalia really signify an abstract thought enough to attract you to that flower through the thought?
