Those tulips are so pretty! Can you imagine seeing a huge field of them? It would be stunning!

No, I do not cut my flowers. I do not like to have flower arrangements in my house, only houseplants. I just hate to see them wither! I envy those who have such lovely arrangements in their home, though.

I would love to see a field full of tulips! That would be an awesome sight. what is your favorite color of tulips?

I plant a lot of flowers but not just for cutting. I love all of the crazy color combos! I do cut them quite often but cutting isn't the point of the flowers.

I bet you have a rainbow of color in your yard @firelily99 every season! Do you ever go for specific color schemes?

Oh My. I planted a bed of Zinias one year. I waited for them to grow, and nothing came out of them. I had this Idea that I could have fresh flowers that year. I ended up with a bunch of green stalks, and no flowers.

I was successful at growing roses, I left them alone, and just realized that a blooming flower for me to admire was good enough for me.

Ahh @charahome so sorry that your zinias did not bloom for you as expected. We kept our house full of them when we grew them. I am glad you are successful at growing roses. I love roses. I currently have 2 bushes. One is a wild rose bush and it is beautiful and one is a red rose bush that the previous owner planted. It is not in a very good place. It is covered by trees and does not get enough sunlight I don't think. I have seen it bloom and it normally has one or two beautiful blooms on it but that is it. I have been afraid to move it.

My glads, phlox and Shasta daisies are wonderful in floral arrangements with peonies and roses. I didn't plant them for cutting. They just seem to find their way into the house with any other perennials that are blooming

LOL I can totally understand this Jewell! I love a nice bunch of flowers on my dining room table!
