My favourite flower might be the spiked rampion. There are a lot of them along the roads right now (in the Pyrenees)and they are really delightful to see. But I suppose that in a month's time my favourite flower will be another one juste for the same reasons ! thank you for your blog, Alisa.

Susan said...

I love all flowers, coming from the Netherlands where flowers a very affordable I used to buy some flowers every week, a different kind each week. Now I'm living abroad and have found that I can't do that anymore, at least not the big bouquets I used to get.
One of my favourite flowers is the Freesia, I find the way the flowers are arranged on the "branch" interesting and the smell divine.
Thank you for the give away.

iHanna said...

Picking a favorite flower is like picking a favorite book, it's just impossible. It depends on mood, season and where you are (indoor, outdoor, etc), but one of many favorites is the schersmin - because of the wonderful smell. Yum!

cococita said...

The floral world is so beautiful in its diversity which makes it rather difficult to have only one favourite.
Among my top 5 is the echinacea flower: the magical thing about my love for this flower is that I got drawn to it at the moment that my body needed it the most, as its quality as a medicinal herb makes this flower an extra wonderful natural creation.
From the aesthetic point of view, I love its simplicity.

Verna G. said...

Lately, I have been loving the simple beauty of the daisy. Thanks for the opportunity!

Becky S. said...

I've loved sunflowers since I was a teenager, and never outgrew them. Peonies and hydrangeas are right up there, though.

Janny van Os said...

For me: the anemone, because of the beautiful purples, pinks, reds and whites, but nevertheless always natural colours. Never too pink, never too purple. They know when they are beautiful enough. And I love poppies, little miracles: so many strength, color and detail in the heart of the flower, on such a tiny stem!

Ginger Dupre said...

Hi Alisa,
For me, it has to be the dahlia. It can be a soft, round pom-pon shape or spiky like a cactus but always in the most beautiful shades.
My great uncle used to grow them at their beach house and when we would spend holidays there in the summer the dahlias would be so bright in the hot sun, almost luminous. They filled the garden, and my memories, with the most amazing pops of color.
Lou
