    I love irises. They are so different looking and pretty hardy. It's not difficult to get them to grow. And they come in all sorts of variations and colors.

    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...

    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.

    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.
