What's your favorite flower?
In the summer, there are so many different flowers blooming that it's a visual feast for the eyes. Mother Nature is at her blooming best! And if you're like me, it's not easy to pick a favorite flower.
On a side note ... I would have created this as a poll (since I love polls!) but then I couldn't add a photo to it. And there's no way we can talk about flowers without having a photo of one ... right?
At any rate, for many people, the favorite is the rose. For others, it's pansies. For still others, it's daisies or zinnias, mums or iris ... well, we could go on almost forever.
Flowers bring joy, give fragrance, and brighten our days. We carry flowers at weddings, send flowers to loved ones, give flowers for birthdays, and even use them to say, "I'm sorry."
That's a pretty big contribution for something that's around for only a few months of the year. And maybe that's why there are so many poems written about flowers.
(So how about you? What's your favorite flower?)
