Fresh Flowers

One of life's little pleasures is buying fresh flowers. I currently have 2 bunches of two-toned tulips on display in my humble abode, fresh from the tulip festival. I couldn't resist buying just one bunch, so I splurged and bought 3, one vase for the kitchen, one vase for the living room, and one for my mom who I had brunch with on Sunday.

Ranauculus are one of my most favorite flowers, among my other top faves, peonies, gardenias, and sunflowers. While I wouldn't turn down a dozen red roses, I find I like the "just picked from the garden" look a little more.

What are your fave flowers?

any kind of wildflowers are my favorite! (funny too...i just did a post about them on smitten yesterday! and i was so impressed by the wide-range of flowers that other women liked...turns out not everyone digs red roses!)

Peonies! I wish they were more affordable though :-( I like do ranunculus too. I have carnations in mason jars and sake bottles around the apartment now because I was being cheap ... but I think I'm getting ranunculus next!

Ranuncs are definitely one of my favorites. Dahlias make me very happy too. I love peonies, but can't stomach the price very often.

Just bought orange ranunculus last night at Trader Joe's so they are my favorite today. Seems to change everyday!

Fresh flowers are my kind of thing! I'm quite fond of Poppies myself!
