Here is a simple spell that allows you to learn your would-be lover's true feelings. It relies on the tradition of sending roses of a specific number in order to communicate one's emotions.
Take a picture of your suitor, and hold it to against your heart as stroll through a garden that contains rose bushes. Simply count as many as you see along your path. You may not turn back. After all have been counted, match that number to the list featured below. If your number is not listed, then you are not meant to know. Then, perhaps, you may try the older form of floralmancy by plucking petals and alternately declaring "s/he loves me" or "s/he loves me not."

If you wish to cast a spell on the object of your affection, you can certainly try sending him or her the appropriate number of roses that best express you intentions, having first kissed each bloom and beseeched it to do you bidding. However, should you fear that this attempt might make you look too infatuated, then other options present themselves.
A Graveyard Love Spell
Using the associated number of roses listed above to express your desire, take them to a cemetery and locate the graves of a married couple, preferably a couple who were together a long time. Divvy the roses between the two, and should there be one left over then place it between the two headstones, or atop the headstone if it is shared. Speak earnestly to the spirits of this couple, naming each, introducing yourself, telling them the name of your beloved, and asking them to tell your beloved of your heartfelt intention and to stir his or her heart in your favor. Should a cold wind blow against you, then your request will no be fulfilled. Otherwise, thank the couple for their help, and know that your beloved will soon turn his or her attention your way.

ROSE POETRY BY THE NUMBERS
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met.
All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet -
One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;
'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet
One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet
One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get
One perfect rose.
I saw Lord Buddha towering by my gate
Saying: "Once more, good youth, I stand and wait."
Saying: "I bring you my fair Law of Peace
And from your withering passion full release;
Release from that white hand that stabbed you so.
The road is calling. With the wind you go,
Forgetting her imperious disdain —
Quenching all memory in the sun and rain."
"Excellent Lord, I come. But first," I said,
"Grant that I bring her these twelve roses red.
Yea, twelve flower kisses for her rose-leaf mouth,
And then indeed I go in bitter drouth
To that far valley where your river flows
In Peace, that once I found in every rose."
