Flowerlady, oriental lilies are very pretty.
You know what else I love? Lilac. A big bouquet of lilac can make any room look lovely and very romantic. What is also very important, the smell of it is just heavenly.
Aren't these pictures beautiful:

Mini-Carns are my favorite hearty flower. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE bulb plants. Especially freesia and hyacinth. Their fragrances are heavenly! I have several aqua-vases, for growing hyacinth without soil. (Sick friend couldn't have soil, but loved living plants) I would grow and rotate them for her. After she passed, I took one out to the cemetary. Filled up the flower holder with water, and dropped the un-vased hyacinth down into the submerged holder bulb and all. That thing lasted a looooong time.

In the spring I like to have a full vase of tulips sitting around. I grew up in a Dutch community and come spring, there are fields of tulips miles long. They have made an entire festival surrounding the harvest. Tulips remind me of home.

In my garden I have a rose bush that I will cut for blooms in the house. We do not have any other flowers in the yard at this time. I would like a snow ball plant to have cuttings for the house.

I love cut Roses, Stargazers, Stock, Caspia, Carnations, Status, Bells of Ireland, Irises, and Dahlias. I love all flowers, really. I used to be a florist and came in contact with many, and loved them all.

I love daffodils and tulips in a vase. They come in such a variety of colors and blossom styles. Plus I love the smell of tulips.

I really like cala lilies, but don't grow them. I think this will be a great flower to grow next season. I also read that instead of spraying the lawn with mosquito spay, plant the mosquito repellent plants such as Citronella grass, Catmint, Rosemary, Basil, Lavender, and Sented Geraniums. This is what I am looking for. I don't like bees but love them in my garden, lol.

Evelynmcgregor - I love the smell of tulips too, because it's very delicate and sweet. Breathing it puts me in a good mood. Tulips always make me think about my boyfriend, because he gives me them often:love:

I've never smelled ginger lillies, but I love roses and I completely agree that a vase full of them makes a wonderful home decoration. Roses are the most beautiful flowers in the whole world:D
