Spring is right around the corner, and what better way to get in the spirit than to share our favorite flowers.

My favorite flower is the peony. I first came across them when searching for flowers for my wedding. I was married in June in Mobile, you can imagine the heat, so I needed the perfect flower and the peony captured my love!

My favorite flower is the tulip....ever since I read Emily Perl/Kingsley's Welcome to Holland...it taught me a unique and beautiful way of thinking about raising a child with special needs and I can't look at tulips quite the same Way.

My favorite flower is Gardenia. No, I can't grow them in Illinois. All I can have is a plant in the house, which requires TLC and I tend to kill them. I love to garden and try to have something blooming from the first thaw to the first freeze. For me it is a combination of fragrances and color. My second favorite flower would be old roses. They smell divine and are at the front and back or my house and one of these days I will take those rose hips and make tea.

I love love love dahlias--the shape of them, the rich, beautiful colors. I can't grow them and have given up trying, and florists don't usually have them so I have to admire from a distance. I tried for years to grow them but I was jinxed. The one year I finally got a beautiful bed of them blooming, when I lived in New Orleans, the new yard guys came in and weed-eated them all to the ground. Yeah, they got fired, but it didn't bring my dahlias back!

I don't have a favorite flower. I like pretty much all of them.

It’s hard to choose a favorite flower, but I’ve always been drawn to lilies. I love the simplicity and grace of calla lilies, the sweetness of Lily of the Valley, the vibrant colors of the larger lilies, and the exoticness of tiger lilies. My wedding bouquet was cream roses and alstroemeria lilies, and I loved it!

Five friends receive a pendant from a gypsy along with a prophecy that whoever wears the necklace will win the heart of a duke. With varying expectations, each girl accepts her turn with the good luck charm—and a chance at happily ever after—secretly fearing the gypsy’s tale may be nothing more than a plot to sell a worthless piece of jewelry.
