Natasha,

Thank you for the thoughtful gift. If someone brought me any flower in the world, I would choose dahlias. My grammy used to grow the most beautiful flowers in her garden, so many different kinds; but I remember her being the most proud of her dahlias.

Whenever I see them, I think of my grammy. I miss her more than words can say.

Thanks Natasha, for bringing such a happy memory to mind.

Why, thank you! Honestly, I love them all! Every flower I see becomes my favorite!

Trina - I cannot even tell you how much I love this story. Those flowers are gorgeous just as the memory of your grandma is...she sounds like she was an incredibly special woman..thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful piece of your heart here...that was a gift :)

Splendid Little Stars - you are such a riot! You are welcome...I LOVE that they all make you happy!!

Greetings!

Thank you most kindly! :-) I did, rather, today. :-)

Sunflowers & those pretty painted daises - shasta daises, I think they're called??? And some dandelions. :-) I don't care that most consider them a weed, they are one of my favorite flowers. They are tough, resilient survivors that are nonetheless quite beautiful. :-) Ntm, tasty, if harvested in the right timeframe. :-D Who could ask for more? :-)

Oh, and some Queen Anne's lace. Also both beautiful & tasty. Some lovely memories from childhood. :-D

BB & GF! :-)

My personal favorite is tiger lillies because of their color and vibrant-ness (that's a word, right :))
What's your favorite Natasha?

thank you natasha! i have so many favorites. i love yellow roses...they were my grandmother's favorites and that just stuck with me.
but, i also love wildflowers. when i got married, i wanted my bouquet to look like i picked it on my way to the church, and it did. one of the flowers in there were wax flowers...they are used as a filler really, but i love them. they look like pine needles with little tiny pink flowers on them.
now i am smiling! thanks!

You know how much I love flowers - my shop is full of them!

I'll take a mixed bouquet, thank you: Pink roses and yellow dahlias for me and lilacs in memory of my mother.

And I'll give back to you a bouquet of bright sunflowers ...

Natasha said...

Phoenix - ahh, I am a sunflower lady ...but all your choices were just delightful....

Frenzy - oh how I love tiger lilies...they are simply gorgeous...and thanks for asking my favs are ..sunflowers, they just make me happy, gerber daisies and pink roses with babies breath...my Mom used to give my Grandma a bunch on her birthday as a thank you for bringing her into the world...now I do the same....

giraffe - oh I can picture your bouquet in my mind and I am in love with it....I love the yellow roses and that they were grandma's fav too....I am smiling as well..thank you...I'd love to see a pic of your bouquet

Felicia - how did you know sunflowers were my fav? Oh your shop never ceases to make me happy with all that is in bloom ...And I love the bouquet you assembled and how lilacs remind you of your mom....

I am in awe of how many flowers struck a cord with people and brought back sweet memories of family..so beautiful

I think I'd have to go with a bunch of wildflowers. Ones you've found on a lovely afternoon walk. That would be perfect for me.

Felicia Kramer said...

Natasha - how did I know you like sunflowers? You silly goose - you told us last week when I posted my sunflower photo for TST! HAHAHA
I would be hard pressed to say which flowers I DON'T like. I'm partial to flowers for cutting so I can have them in the house as well as the garden.
