  1. You got me when you said that red roses symbolize love and can convey deep feelings of perfection and beauty. My brother is planning to propose to his girlfriend of 7 years next week. He wants to have flowers delivered to her girlfriend’s office as part of his surprise, and he wants her to feel how much he loves her.
