Ask anyone who loves flowers, “What’s your favorite flower?” and you are sure to hear a long sigh. Flower Lover’s have far too many flowers to list, let alone just pick one. And, our favorites change with the season, our mood, the theme or the moment.
Common favorites do not always include a rose. I know, saying that is almost blasphemy with the grand rose holiday just around the corner. Flower lovers tend to choose flowers that are a bit more fragile, “garden-y” and fragrant. My favorites include tender Ranunculas, delicate Anemone, fragrant and vibrant Hyacinth, romantic sweet Peas and yes, the Rose…but only if it is fragrant and reminiscent of grandma’s garden.
Professional Florists can always recognize a Flower Lover and are delighted to seek out special flowers when they know that they are loved and appreciated. The next time you visit your florist, share your favorites with them. They may not have these blossoms in stock, but they will be happy to order them in and make a special arrangement just for you.
