This is actually a really great idea... Is it weird that I made a shrine for the rose with red everything and a rose red crafted with a rose when my server updated to 1.7? But in all honesty I don't think that if they don't bring them back it will be the end of the world. If they did this to yellow flowers it would be the same. But there is one sad part, Iron Golems wont be able to give roses to villagers
Yeah, it is a shame that they were removed. It won't be the end of the world though, it may just be the end of a few players who's favorite block was the rose. Somebody should start a petition to re-add the rose.
