发布时间:2019-06-09 16:31 类别:优美散文

  欧洲见到的第一枝真正的原色红玫瑰叫做“斯莱特中国深红”,于1792年从中国引进。当时,它一直生长在中国山区的野地里。玫瑰培育者马上开始用它进行杂交种植。从此,寻求完美的红玫瑰一直是玫瑰栽培者所追求的理想。这种玫瑰应具有芳香的气味、抵御疾病的能力、持久的花期、修长的花茎、反复开花的本领、优美的体态以及不褪色的纯鲜红颜色。然而,绝对的完美却始终未达到,当然也永远无法达到!

  There is a special rose language invented as a secret means of communication between lovers who were not allowed to express their love for one another openly. In the mid 18th century the wife of the British ambassador in Constantinople described this in her letters, which were published after her death. These letters inspired many books on the language of flowers, each describing the secret message hidden in each flower. A red rose bud stands for budding desire, an open white rose asks "Will you love me?", an open red rose means "I'm full of love and desire", while an open yellow rose asks "Don't you love me any more?"

  人们发明了一种特殊的玫瑰语言,作为不被允许公开示爱的情侣间秘密交流的方式。18世纪中期,英国驻君士坦丁堡大使的夫人在信中对此做了描述。这些信件在她死后出版,激发了许许多多关于花草语言书籍的问世,每一本书都对每种花所隐藏的信息进行了描述。一朵红玫瑰花蕾代表萌发中的情欲;一枝盛开的白玫瑰则是在探问:“你会爱我吗?”一枝绽开的红玫瑰的含义是:“我对你满怀着爱意和渴望”,而一枝开放的黄玫瑰则是在询问:“你是不是不再爱我了?”
