{spring things: may flowers}



. . . while often most drawn to elegant roses at the flower markets, must confess, can never resist the full, ruffly blooms of peonies, especially the pink ones . . . what is your favourite flower?

Peonies are my favorite flowers. I love their shabby, soft look. They're what I chose for my wedding bouquet. =)

You make everything sound so dreamy and beautiful!
Peonies, ranunculus, and cabbage roses are my favorite flowers especcially when they are all together in a bouquet. I also love pink and red tulips with the little white border!

While peonies are amazing, I LOVE gardenias. During the summer when I visit my parents, my dad always says, "Hold on a minute..." and goes out to the garden to bring me one!

I have to say I am not a big fan of roses, though I do love Alba roses. I guess the fuller, softer sorts of flowers draw my attention most, though my favourite will always be Hydrangeas, in blue, pink or white :)

I like tulips--bright yellow, oranges, and pinks with the tidy, celadon stems. I like their round, tidy shape.
