my daughter in law had a bouquet of orange ones when she married my son - looked gorgeous

she also had a matching tribute to put on my husband's stone just outside the entrance to the church that day - it was a lovely thought

Oh how lovely what a lovely thing to do there really is something uplifting about them

Dear Ladies


My favourites are roses, any colour at all.

Our local park has set aside an area for wild flowers to be cultivated and
there are now tall stems of lavender.

I passed by them today and thought how beautiful they looked
by the 300 year old oak tree.

The community gardeners have recently put up information boards about the history of the park, wildlife and flowers.

Take gentle care
Best wishes
Elizabeth, EOS

Hello ladies I love Roses too I have a garden full of roses but my Mum bought me a Gerbera plant which I just put on my kitchen window thinking it wont reflower as they are very difficult to keep but it has now reflowered three times I am really chuffed "blows on green fingers" :-D

Mersey you have the same favourites as me. <3


AnninGlos Report 3 Jul 2013 21:12

Difficult question. I love all flowers and don't really have a favourite. I love roses that have a scent, Sweet peas ditto, Freesias ditto. Yes I like Gerberas and orchids too. Then there are snowdrops and primroses, forgetmenots and irises. I could go on, I did warn you.


RoseoftheShires Report 3 Jul 2013 22:04

Oh Ann perhaps I should have asked which one you "don't" like :-S


AnninGlos Report 3 Jul 2013 22:06

:-D :-D :-D not over keen on lillies


RoseoftheShires Report 3 Jul 2013 22:08

lol I knew there would be one.

I have some amazing fuschias in a chimney pot in my garden I often look at flowers and wonder how they know what colour to be :-0


JoyBoroAngel Report 3 Jul 2013 22:11

RoseoftheShires Report 3 Jul 2013 22:12

Hello lovely lady <3


MarieCeleste Report 3 Jul 2013 22:15

I love just about all flowers but one of my favourites is livingstone daisies, I love the way they open their little faces to the sun.

ADDED: Musn't forget my night scented stock, not a stunner to look at through the day but the smell at night is lovely.


RoseoftheShires Report 3 Jul 2013 22:20

I had some night scent stock last year I was beautiful infact reading all your posts all flowers are beautiful


RoseoftheShires Report 4 Jul 2013 16:11

i was thinking about this last night and strangely enough I had freesias in my wedding bouquet so I must add them to the list :-D


Jane Report 4 Jul 2013 16:27

Hi Rach
My favourites are Roses without a doubt.Love almost any flowers but not Lillies.
I have to cut out the stamens if I have any as the scent gives me a right headache.
Is it stamens? The bits with pollen on lol .I'm not that keen on Chrysanthemums either.
I bet your garden is looking lovely now :-D
