Roses

I like those peach "Peace" roses with a pink edge.

However, for non-grocery-store varieties....I prefer tea roses that produce rose hips. Rose hips are very tasty. I always like heritage varieties of roses better.

On one of my birthdays my husband sent a bouquet of a half-dozen roses to my workplace. Each rose was a different color - red, pink, white, yellow, peach and lavendar. It was the most beautiful arrangement of flowers I had seen! I personally favor the peach and lavendar just 'cuz they're not your everyday rose. I don't think either of them are natural either. They are either dyed that color or a result of genetic tweaking to get that color.

It's fun getting flowers unexpectedly, isn't it?

OK, sorry. I just didn't realize that.

I love peach ones, though...

I just think it is interesting that everytime something unexpected happens, people attribute it to genetic engineering. Genetic engineering actually affects crops a lot less than people think because of USDA regulations. There are currently no GM fruits and vegetables on the market right now.

my fav is the rare/nonexistant blue rose. so far they have been able to genetically make a blue rose but the leaves and stem also turned blue. And all of this can be blamed on the smurfs! theres an episode where smurfette wants a blue rose and she gives up her blue skin color to have mother nature make hera blue rose (trying to stay on topic-there's more to the story). the only rose that comes close are the lavender ones, and i had them for my wedding!! my hubby knows that if he gets me roses they have to be purple/lavender. reds, pinkks, yellows, peaches, oranges and others are all very beautiful but i just like the weird purple ones!

GM soybeans and corn have been around for a long time. http://www.mercola.com/2004/jan/24/gm_foods.htm

Aside from corn and soy, other GM foods grown in the United States include cotton, canola, squash and papaya

I love white roses, and also the "peace" ones Shengmei talked about. My grandpa bought me a peace rose bush when I was little, it grew in our garden for several years, but died when he tried to move it.

But overall, I'm not really a fan of roses. I like creativity! I would love to recieve a potted gerber daisy in some bright outrageous colour over a bouquet of roses anyday!

I've seen blue roses... but I think they were white roses that had been dyed, as the tips were darker and they were kinda veiney. I've heard if you put a white rose in water with food colouring, it begins to pick up that colouring!
