Which flowers are those, you ask?
Well, step into my garden and I'll gladly show you! :)
So. Many. Petals! Peonies are so big and lush and full. Their color is such a powerful, intense pink or red, (or sometimes a lovely blush or white). They smell amazing too. :)
There's a reason it's called Lavender Spring, you know. :) Lavender has a wonderful scent, and an even more wonderful color. Lavender does not have the most interesting blossoms, but I do like how nice the stems look all together.
If it didn't flow or click like "lavender" did, you can bet this blog would be called "Lilac Spring" instead. (But see what I mean? It just doesn't "go" together.) I love lilacs so much; their color, the bunches of flowers on each stem, and the smell. The smell is heavenly!
Roses are pretty. They just are. They're delicate, feminine, and simply gorgeous. I only like the English garden roses though, the open, round ones with lots of petals. I don't really care for cup-shaped roses that look like they're dyed different colors. No orange or purple roses for me! (I suppose I'm a rose snob. I'm OK with that.)
Crape Myrtle is such a lovely symbol of the South. I always associate it with driving through Virginia. :) I like the bright pink ones the best. They are all so delicate and fragrant! And of course, the crape myrtles in Williamsburg are the best. ;)
