Hello everyone, lets share our thoughts about this topic! I will choose sunflower, since I am very energetic and lively during day time, I can do my work and task efficiently during the day.Though yellow is not my favorite color, LOL! How about you?

I would be a carnation, because everyone likes me, but I don't really stand out in the crowd. Although, I am some people's favorite.

I like sunflowers and they are very lovely,my mom has always liked sunflowers,so she has sunflowers all over the house,If I was going to choose a flower I would be,I would have to choose the Venus Fly Trap because they look innocent but they can be very mean,just like me because I look innocent and sweet but if I get pissed off I can be very mean.

I'd be a daisy because it is free and simple and I just really love daisies and all wild flowers for that matter.

Hello checapricorn, First of all, I just let you know a fact - I'm a woman and I don't like flowers *sighs* My favorite color differs from year to year and if you still ask me the question, I think I should choose to be a red rose. Whenever you mention the name, it sounds so calm and soft and I am a type of person who's sensitive and loyal but bubbly and sometimes very hard headed in certain way....*laughs*

I would be a daffodil (like my avatar), as it flourishes in the spring time and so do I. It's also bright and cheery, which is what I aspire to be! And yellow is my favourite colour and makes me very happy and optimistic :)

If I were be a flower I'll prefer to be tulips. Because it matches my personality because tulips are not too elegant, too romantic, too big nor small, not too bright in color; they are just right. Tulips are comfortable flower choice and one that expresses perfect love.

Here in the Philippines we have a very rare flower called the everlasting flower. It lasts for a very long period of time. It is very pretty. Its colors are brown and yellow. I have a sunny personality. Like the everlasting flower, I want to last in this world for a very long period of time. I would like to immortalize my existence by leaving something remarkable to this world that I will be remembered for.

hmmm, great question, LOL if i will be a flower i would like to be my favorite TULIP, i prefer t be the color orange but other color is ok i chose tulip coz they look like a satin, simple yet beautiful, easy to my eye, very delicate, needs a great care to make it bloom right, when i look at them you can see the beauty directly no need to look to other properties of it and very elegant too. i guess, i am the same way - exempt the beautiful part the simplicity describes me most. i used to have lots of 'em back in china coz they are cheap there but cant buy often here coz they sell the flower without the bulb on it (i prefer it with a bulb so i can plant or keep it afterwards) takecare and have a good one!

Sunflowers are very beautiful flowers. My Fiance's mother loves them, and has them throughout the house handing in various spots... (as they are merely for decorative purposes, they are not real). We also have bought her a candle that is sunflower and she has burnt it once. I would have to say that I am more characteristic of a roses nature. I am passionate and kind, romantic and sensual. I love to love, and cherish my fiance with all of my heart. I have fire.

I would be a Rio Samba Rose. They are the ones that are yellow at the bottom an a bright red-orange at the top. I chose this, first of all because it is my favorite rose, and it fits my personality. Yellow defines friendship and that is the base of my relationships and red symbolizes passion which what my relationship turns into. the varigated color of the rose sort of symbolizes becoming best friends with my bf before dating him.

I would say carnation, that is my favorite. Carnations are pretty and smell pretty, yet they are over shadowed by roses.
