My Favorite Blooms

Since it's Spring (the blooming season), I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite flowers. And no, unlike Meg Ryan's character in You've Got Mail, daisies are not one of them. I love that quote from the movie though. All I could find was a sound clip of it:

 

They are pretty friendly, and I don't mind them. But today I'm sharing four of my hands-down favorites. And they are: 1) Peonies, 2) Hydrangeas, 3) Ranunculas, and 4) English Roses. Can you tell I prefer big blooms and lots of layered petals? Here are some photos and links to info about each species to brighten up your Saturday and expand your floral knowledge:

Last year we planted both Peonies and Hydrangeas in our yard. But they were young flowers and I don't think they did very well. I'm starting to think we might be Black Thumbs....

Here's hoping we do better this year!
