    Tulips

    I love tulips because they remind me of my childhood.  My mother always had tulips that surrounded our sidewalk and I couldn't wait for the green shoots to show as this was a sign that Spring was here.  I can also vividly remember the thousands of tulips on the White...

    So Many...

    I used to be a die-hard Sunflower fan, such tall, stately, strong, hardy flowers. Then I became a rose fan, and still am, wholeheartedly. I love purple Irises too. My favorite would have to be those small pink roses that grow on vines over trellises, and on porch rails, hundreds...

    Underappreciated Baby's Breath

    No one ever pays much attention to this tiny flower. It's usually just filler, and gets added to a bouquet as an afterthought. But it is actually quite beautiful on its own. It looks like floating fuzzy lace and is everything delicate that a flower should be.

    Daisies

    I love daises, they are by far my favorite. I have a fake black daisy in my room, that I'm in love with. Once my friend gave me a daisy for no reason, it made my day by far. My second would be striped carnations followed by yellow roses.

    Orchids.

    I love them. Before I was displaced from my life and home from my less than stellar ex-husband, I had so many orchids. All different kinds. I have always had a green thumb with regular plants and decided to take a chance on the more exotic. I am happy to say that I did very well...

    Night Blooming Cereus.

    It's a flower that only blooms once, and only in the night. Come morning, and it will wither away. They have the sweetest scent, a mix between jasmines and gardenias. And they bloom like the whitest stars in the black night. Absolutely beautiful flowers.
