Cherry & Rose
As noted American botanist and scientist Luther Burbank has said: "Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful. They are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.". And roses are perhaps the flower that is most responsible for bringing happiness, sunshine and love to someone's day as roses are possibly most well-loved flower in the world.
But perhaps the most romantic combination in the world is roses and cherries. Roses, of course, have long been a symbol of love. But cherries have also long been seen in China and Japan as potent symbols of springtime and youth. English folk beliefs also say that cherry trees are a symbol of luck and love; lovers who meet for the first time under a cherry tree are said to be the luckiest of couples!
Both cherries and roses are also claimed to have several health benefits, some of which include: high antioxidant levels and possible inflammation reducing qualities in cherries as well as vitamin C and natural stress relieving properties in rose petals.
