I was documenting the arboretum just nearby my home and it was the season, well almost the end of season of roses...
The number of roses a man once gave a woman held hidden meanings:
One rose: Love at first sight, or years later "you are still the one."
Two roses: Mutual love and affection . . . so you may owe him two roses!
Three roses: The traditional three-month anniversary gift also simply means "I love you."
Six roses: Infatuation, or "I want to be yours."
Nine roses: A big jump up from six, nine roses symbolizes eternal love or "I want to be with you forever."
10 roses: A perfect 10 means "You are perfection."
12 roses: A dozen is like picking the best heart from a Sweetheart candy box; it means "be mine."
13 roses: Thirteen may be a baker's dozen, but not so in love.
15 roses: Does he have a reason to apologize? Because 15 roses means "I'm sorry." If not, take it as credit for future remorse.
20 roses: The red starts to get excessive around 20, and supposedly that means "Believe me, I am sincere toward you." Usually, sincerity does not need to be proved with quantity, but that's just me!
21 roses: "I am dedicated to you" is the hidden meaning behind 21 roses. I am going to bet this was once popular among cheaters looking to be taken back.
24 roses: If one dozen says "be mine," two dozen says "I'm yours." Be careful; he could be yours whether you want it or not.
25 roses: Are you pregnant? Did you just get a promotion? Have you not killed the fish he gave you for Christmas? Because 25 roses simply means "congratulations."
36 roses: Three dozen not only says "big spender," but it also says "I'm head over heels in love" or "I will remember our romantic moments."
40 roses: Forty roses says what 10, 20, or 30 can't: "My love for you is genuine."
50-plus roses: Fifty and beyond can mean a few things, and they're all big and boisterous. Traditionally, they mean my love, like my wallet, knows no bounds.

Volčji Potok Arboretum is the largest botanical park (arboretum) in Slovenia and comparable to the well known botanical parks of the World... Visitors from all parts of Europe came to this place to be fascinated by millions of spring flowers every year. The park spreads on eighty hectares of ecologically much diversified ground which is occupied by about 2.500 different types of trees and shrubs. The plant collection has been thoughtfully designed as a landscape park. Arboretum was declared as a cultural monument of the highest importance in 1999. This place is interesting in every season of the year: people come here for walks in early spring to enjoy the nature's colorful waking, on hot days to find delight in charming gaily colored flower beds, in autumn to find peace and solitude and make use of the last warm sunshine rays and finally they come in winter to pay attention to things not noticed earlier...
