Rosie oh

Imagine a picture in your mind. There is a rose plant. A few roses have grown up in the plant. There are a few bees hovering over them.

Now read the given statements carefully: 1) If every one of the bees lands on a rose, one of them won't get a rose. 2) If two bees share rise together, then there will be one rose left without any bee.

Can you find out the number of roses on the plant and the number of bees?
