    Hi Erickhr85,

    A rose is a kind of flower.
    A joke is a humorous story.
    A canoe is a narrow boat that holds 2 or 3 people.
    A loveseat is a piece of furniture like a couch for two people.
    A guitar is a musical instrument with 6 or 12 strings that you hold in your hands.

    Keep practicing.

    Roses are flowers. They grow from a rosebush, and depending on variety, can bloom in a variety of colors. Roses can have white, red, pink, or yellow blooms, just to name a few. Red roses are the traditional symbol of love, and are given to lovers on St. Valentine's day in the US and other countries where it is celebrated. Yellow roses symbolize friendship, and are often exchanged between young women. All roses have a bloom at the end of a stem which is covered with thorns. The thorns are very sharp and are often removed before the rose is given as a gift. The leaves of the rose are green in color and oblong in shape with a finely serrated edge. Roses have a wonderful aroma that is fresh and clean, like a cool outdoor stream. Roses are kept cold after being cut to preserve the freshness.

    Hi erickhr85,

    I just wrote it based on what I know. I suppose a good resource would be the internet, or an encyclopaedia. Even a dictionary would be a good start.

    Hey Bruce, I think there is a little mistake when you say "Yellow roses symbolize friendship, and are often exchanged betweenyou’re young women." There in "betweenyou're young women" its a mistake but I cant fix it because I dont know what were you trying to say. This is the last time Im going to boder you..THANK YOU!!!

    Hello,

    I fixed the error. The word "you're" didn't belong in there. It should just say "between young women." My meaning was that if two young women were friends, like classmates at college, one might give the other a yellow rose to acknowledge a favor or to show her affection.

    I fixed the post, removed the word "you're".
