Aren't these so beautiful? I love taking a close up shot of the flowers.
What is your favorite flower?  Do you grow them?
I use to have a houseful of plants but, when the kids grew up and moved out I slowly weeded (I'm so funny!!) them out and now I have 3 plants total!! 2 Orchids and 1 Christmas Cactus. What about you? Do you find the older you get the more plants you want or the less?

  2. Gorgeous flowers and gorgeous photographs! Daffodils are my favorite flower, and I'm really looking forward to some in my garden this year.

    1. Daffodils! Are they hard to grow? Do you think they would grow in a pot inside? I'd love to try that, they are such a happy flower! Those and sunflowers!! LOVE sunflowers!!

  3. How gorgeous! It's still cold here so I'm not seeing any flowers! I don't know if I have a favorite flower. Maybe Jasmine, Roses, or Lilac? And we do grow Jasmine and try growing Roses each year. I hope that I can grow a bevy of plants as I grow older, but I don't know how likely that'll be. A Christmas cactus is a great plant to have!

    1. Ari, we have a Jasmine plant outside the front door, in the summer the scent is AMAZING!!
      This Christmas cactus has been around for so long! I do nothing with it except water it and every year it gives me beautiful blooms. Maybe this year will be the year I re-pot it??

  5. Wow they are so beautiful. My favorite flower is a tulip. I use to grow them but no anymore. I use to have beautiful flower beds. That seems like a lifetime ago. I have a bad back & knee now so I cant plant & take care of flower beds anymore. I sure do miss them!
