Valentine's day is just a week away and if you're planning to give roses to your sweetheart to mark the special occasion, you should really know what "Secret Message" you're sending.

Yes, the number of roses you give carries a meaning that I had  never realized.  Check out this guide to the number of roses to give and what each color means.
