I know I am not alone in flowers being one of my favorite signs of spring. This week we are suppose to be back to sunny skies and temperatures in the 70's. This makes me want to fill my home not only with the much needed sunshine but bouquets of flowers. My favorites are tulips, white tulips to be exact. I just love the simplicity of having a bouquet of tulips, no fuss or fillers needed. But I have so many others too.
Roses are a favorite of mine. My grandmother had rows and rows of rose bushes and she would pour over catalogs each each year to add to her collection. When I think of her one of my most frequent images that comes to mind is setting in the grass next to her in the hot sun as she tended to her rose bushes. My grandfather would also buy her a rose bush each year for mothers day and looking back now I love the sentiment of such a gift. Even though they are gone I know their rose bushes are still there growing and blooming each year. (Sometimes I think about going in the dark of night and digging them up and bringing them back to my house but then I realize that would make me crazy. I am kidding. Mostly.)
A few others are Peonies, ranunculus, poppies, stargazer lilies (oh they smell so good!), and I could go on but I may end up listing every flower I know the name of. What are some of your favorite flowers?
