Seeing all these pictures, there are so many beautiful flowers. I love sunflowers (my room used to be all done in sunflowers), gerber daisies, irises and poppies (yellow-orange California variety). Those really round, cream roses that are used in wedding bouquets are also gorgeous (especially when they have that pink shading around the edge).

Yellow roses....
apparently they mean friendship, not love, but they're so boo-ti-ful.

& Lillies and Orchids.

I actually love wildflowers too. No particular typre, just random bunches of stuff that grows in fields. I find they're often the prettiest.

Right heer , right now

I still love them all, but tonight, just as dusk descended I noticed all the cactus flower buds starting to open. They will bloom in the darkness. I brought one of the pots inside and it took about 2 hours to open. This cactus is particularly prolific one, I have divided it into lots of different pots. Anyone know their cacti varieties? I call it the "white one".
This photo was taken a couple of years ago when it bloomed in the daytime. I love my garden and have got some new energy for it lately...look out....I won't post pics.I have about 3gazillion. I used to take too many photos of plants really and "my" Pentax has died recently.
But there is so much beauty....even in the drought, the day lillies are budding, japoticabas...even mangoes the size of a brasil nut on the tre.(they may not stay on if it continues to be so dry over summer)
gardens, flowers... biodiversity and U2 ahhhhhhh

I really like Forget-me-nots as well. Such an understated flower.

i am still waiting for guys to wake up and send me Iris'...amazing out of all of the guys that i have ever dated not one of them has used their brain to buy me Iris'...idiots... if a guy even presents me with just a single Iris flower, i am sure i will die a happy girl right there on the spot.

funny you should mention irises, MissVelvetDress, owner of that lovely beagle up there
I bought quite a few bunches of irises when my friend Craig died. I had the job of buying the flowers for his wife on behalf of our soccer club. I bought her a vase and the irisies and popped in a tiny purple teddy bear my sister had given me( I thought/hoped it would mean something more...i LOVED that bear...our club is called THE BEARS!!!).
I found a book yesterday, it is so beautiful (except it is perfumed with Penhaligon's Violetta and it is spinning me out a bit, I am sensitive to some perfumes...unfortunately)
The book is called "The Language of Flowers"...it has poems and legends and the most beautiful series of paintings for each flower. I love the last one"Lotus Lillies" by Charles Courtnet Curran..all lovely.

I'll leave you this listahhh flowers
Camellia....perfected loveliness
Daffodil...regard and chivalry
Forget-me -not...true love ( it has a sad sad tale)
Jasmine...grace and elegance
Lilly-of-the-Valley....return of happiness
Orchid...a belle
Tulip...declaration of love
Water Lilly...purity of heart

I would send roses, sweet peas and white camellias to someone I loved.

Water Lily
purity of heart
Now folds the lilly all her sweetness up,
And slips into the bosom of the lake.
So fold thyself, my dearest, thou, and slip
Into my bosom and be lost in me.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
