“My love is like a red red rose…” so says Robert Burns.  A red rose is the recognised symbol of love, a single red rose or six long stems are the usual choices. You could be traditional or you could let your imagination create a unique bouquet in favourite colours or a single colour, pale and sophisticated, bold and dramatic. Anything is possible.

Saint Valentine’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated on 14 February and is commonly known as Valentine’s Day. It’s a celebration of romance between you and your beloved – usually your romantic partner but traditionally you could also send messages of love and affection to family and friends. This is still done in many parts of the world.

The origins of Valentine’s Day involve the ancient Romans and a decree by Emperor Claudius II to bring St Valentine to a not so lovely end because he was marrying Roman soldiers in secret, something which Claudius had forbidden – or so the story goes. Some say it was Chaucer who first linked St Valentine with love and started the tradition of expressing secret love. The admiration is supposed to be a mystery – and so a Valentine message would be signed ‘Your Valentine’ rather than with a name, but hopefully, your beau will guess it’s you who sent the message or gift.

Your secret is safe with me, I won’t tell.
