`The rose is red, the violet`s blue,
The honey`s sweet, and so are you.
Thou art my love and I am thine,
I drew thee to my Valentine
The lot was cast and then I drew,
And Fortune said it shou`d be you`
Gammer Gurton`s Garland (1784)
In the courts of 18th-century England, the tradition of Saint Valentine`s Day evolved into an occasion where lovers expressed their feelings with flowers, confectionary and greeting cards, known as `Valentines`.
And as the age-old saying goes, `Love never dies`. The Valentine`s tradition of celebrating your love, gratitude and appreciation of a partner, secret love or simply a beautiful friendship, has carried on through the generations.
To this day it goes without saying that receiving a flower bouquet with a beautiful card message is guaranteed to make one feel wonderful, loved, valued, cherished and spoilt.
