What are your favorite flowers?

I love it when my husband gets me flowers not just because it is my birthday, our anniversary, or because my hubby feels bad for something he said or did, but because he just wants to get me flowers on a regular day. I love having flowers in the house. Sometimes, when my husband doesn't get me flowers I get them for me myself. Nothing wrong with that I hope. When it comes to flowers people usually gift roses. I love roses but they are not my favorite flowers. I'd say my favorite flowers are daisies and Gerbera daisies. When I look at them they make me smile, cheer me up, brighten my day. I'd choose them any day over roses. Do you have a favorite flower that brightens your day?

I am not a gardener. Don't know how to properly take care of plants or flowers. And not sure I'd have it in me to take care of them all the time. Wish I was different though because I love flowers and having plants around the house. All I have is bamboo and another plant (forget the name) that gives flowers in the winter. Oh, and I get flower arrangements sometimes or my hubby gets me some.

@lovebuglena I am not a gardener either. But my hubby is and takes care of all of that.

@fishtiger58 That's great! My hubby is not a gardener. And I don't think he'd water the plants on a regular basis. He never really waters the one plant we have. It's either me or noone.

I like sunflowers. To my surprise my husband recently gifted me sunflowers. They didn't seem to stand that long though. Maybe it was too hot in the house.

I love roses but they are way over-gifted. When someone gifts flowers you are sure that either the whole bouquet will be roses or it will be a mix with some roses in it.

Not a flower person. But my favorites would be carnations. Then roses.

I used to love carnations in the past but not such a fan anymore. My grandma loved them though.

Roses, but....I told my husband early on not to buy me flowers that I prefer he buy a living plant instead. So far he got me flowers for Christmas and birthdays even tho I said not to

Plants definitely last longer. And brighten up the house. Give it some life. But you have to take care of them on a regular basis and not forget to water them. Not sure how I'd do with that. It's not hard to water them. Just have to remember to do it and wanna do it.

@lovebuglena I have never been w/o house plants, and I don't forget to take care of them...just part of a routine. Not every has the desire.

Well, my favorite flower is the gardenia and not one that would grow here, but my lousy flower-skills would not have a gardenia living well inside my house either.

@lovebuglena The fragrance from a gardenia is one of my favorites.
