I love lilies! They're my favorite! I love the pink ones the best, since they have color. I love the way that they smell too. My hubby just bought me some for our anniversary, and the second you walk into our home, you smell lilies. It's sooooooooo wonderful! What's your favorite flower and why?

I'm training to be a florist this year (starting this wednesday as a matter of fact) and as such while I've been preparing I've come across alot of different types. My all time favourite has to be the Lily especially the Tiger Lily. I love the vibrant colour and just the boldness of it and the way the petals curl. I also love Cherry Blossom and Orchids. I love flowers, and the way that no matter how bad I'm feeling, they always cheer me up.

Could you post a photo of the tiger lily so I can see the difference between the tiger lily and the regular lily?

Thanks. They definitely look different, but I still like my pink/purple lilies best. Do you know if they have a specific name (like your tiger lilies)? Just curious.

i like edelweiss for it's difficulty to reach. you have to climb to the top of a mountain to get it. but i don't usually pick it. i would rather keep it there.

Yeah, I'd rather not have to climb a mountain to get it either. Makes more sense just to leave it there. What does it look like?

it's cute and simple. there are different kinds of edelweiss. near by the top of mt. rinjani (3700 m) you can find the beautiful yellow edelweiss.

My fave has always been tulips. I love the simplicity of the flower and the large variety of color. I just wish I could get my husband to remember that I hate roses. They are too comercialized and out there. Tulips are like the ugly little sister---quiet and laid back but once you know em they are the best.

So, are you trying to say that they're like you, quiet and laid back? Is there a certain color of tulips that you prefer, or just a mixture?

I am quiet and laid back until I know a person and then it's a totally different story. My fave tulip color is the mixed ones. There is a peach tulip that is mixed with red. It almost looks like the tulip is bleeding. I guess that supports my slightly morbid nature.lol

So you're like me - quiet and laid back until you get to know someone. That's great. Thanks for responding.

It has to be roses for me. Love the colours they come in. And they bring back alot of good memorys as we use to make perfume out of the rose petals when we were children.

Do they have to be a certain color, or do you like all of them? I like roses, but I can't seem to keep them alive, so I've given up on them.

I love lily of the valley. I love the delicate blooms, the aroma, the sign that spring has arrived. But I also love the fuzzy pink flowers of the mimosa tree. I love the scent but it brings back childhood memories. That is the tree I always climbed, the one the swing hung from, the time of innocence.

Beautiful, just beautiful. I don't even know what they look like, but the way that you describe them makes me feel like I do know. Thanks for sharing that wonderful description.

I like alll flowers it's difficult for me to choose my favorite... It is just depends on my mood then I can pick my favorite flowers.. Lately I like white Lotus flowers.. They bloom at night till morning only and the petals closed again in the afternoon.. I saw it everynight in the fish pond in front of my job desk..
