Blue roses

"Blue roses will blossom in the snow,
Before I ever let you go.
Blue roses will grow up to the sky,
Before I ever make you cry."

This time I am sharing with you my love, my impossible love for fantastic blue roses. A book by Ibn al Awam, which was written in the twelfth century, tells us that blue roses were attained by placing a blue dye into the bark of the roots. This process is explained in the book and has been proven to work by Joret, a very knowledgeable french scientist. Blue roses stands for fantasy and impossibility.It is said that the Blue roses traditionally signify mystery or attaining the impossible. They are believed to be able to grant the owner youth or grant wishes. Here I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU A BEAUTIFUL BUT SAD POEM BY Rudyard Kipling mentioning BLUE ROSES.

ROSES red and roses white
Plucked I for my love’s delight.
She would none of all my posies—
Bade me gather her blue roses.

Half the world I wandered through,
Seeking where such flowers grew
Half the world unto my quest
Answered me with laugh and jest.

Home I came at wintertide,
But my silly love had died
Seeking with her latest breath
Roses from the arms of Death.

It may be beyond the grave
She shall find what she would have.
Mine was but an idle quest—
Roses white and red are best!

Blue roses stands for yearning and for hoping for a miracle,new possibilities or opportunities but it is not possible.

This was absolutely fascinating. I had never heard of a blue rose before. I plan to go and check the references to blue roses that you provided in the link.
