Do Tell: What is your favorite flower?

flowers polly wreford

This week, I’d like to know which bloom is your favorite. I like many different types of flowers, depending on my mood. I adore white hydrangeas, brightly colored roses, orchids, tulips, but my absolute favorite flowers in the world are pink peonies. What is your favorite flower?

Icelandic Poppies, Ranunculus, Peonies, and Gardenias (but mostly because they smell so awesome)

So pretty!! I love pink or white ranunculus, fluffy peonies (esp. the bright coral/pink kind), and cheery, yellow daffodils. I also like to throw some Bells of Ireland in arrangements for a little interest and a hint of green. xx, Laura

Violets.
I love violets.
My bedroom is decorated with linens covered with violets. You might say I'm obsessed with this wonderful flower. I even love sweets that are flavored with violets.
After violets, I really like lilacs and lavender as well, because they both have heavenly fragrance.

I will always love the classic roses, just not red, not a big fan of red roses. Next up Hydrangeas and last but not least tulips.

love pink and orange gerbera daisies, chartruese figi mums and orchids...for their scent--nothing like lilacs the middle of may:)

Julia said...

Always roses. What can I say? I'm a classic kind of girl. But I like cabbage roses the best. They're huge and amazing.

Right now, ranunculus - they are going wild in my front yard, in yellow and red - love it!

I love hydrangeas, they're so voluminous, and they come in both pastel ad vibrant colors. =)

The palest of pink peonies or cymbidium orchids- LOOOVE both.

Rachel said...

Dahlias! And peonies are lovely too!

Tiffany @ Savor Home said...

I have some tulips on my desk right now that I bought on Sunday. I'm trying my hardest the keep them alive because I LOVE them! Daisies are a close second. They are a "friendly" flower- as Meg Ryan said in You've Got Mail.

Stargazer Lillies, Irises, and Roses.

I love peonies, tulips, ranunculus, lilacs, zinnias and especially snapdragons - they remind me of my childhood.

I certainly cannot pick just one favorite! I love pink peonies as well and certain white orchids. Today I bought these fabulous pink tulips with bright yellow centers. There is nothing like fresh flowers to cheer you up!

Rachel said...

Honeysuckle...it brings back fond memories of childhood. I usually lean toward white flowers because of their clean fragrance.

It's so hard to choose! Apricot roses in the garden, orchids for decor, trailing jasmine for around a front door, and peonies in a boquet from my husband! Fun post. :)

my favorite flower is freesia, 2nd would be hydrangeas or peonies. and sweet peas smell amazing!!

Sheila Zeller said...

I love white & limey-green anthirium hands down, but also really like deep crimson peonies, assorted colours of tulips and sweetpeas, firey orange nasturtiums, and I love the showiness of deep red begonias. Yellow flowers are not a fan favorite of mine...except for sunflowers...sunflowers bring a smile to every space!

JESSICA DEFINE said...

ranunculus and gardenia. hands down. neither one was in my wedding bouquet, that damn florist! ugh.

Lisa said...

Pink peonies are my favorite too! Orangey-yellow ranunculus, purple orchids, white calla lilies, and yellow tulips also top the list!

Livin Westside said...
