My favorite flower

A couple of posts ago I mentioned that peonies were my 2nd favorite flower.  What?!?  How can they no t be my first favorite.  Many of you asked what my favorite one was.  Well,  that spot has belonged to the Anemone for years now.  Sometimes the color changes (it is white right now,) but my favorite will always be this lovely flower with the big black center.  I wanted them so badly at my wedding, but they weren't in season.  I had to "settle" for peonies, hydrangeas and gerber daisies.  Don't get me wrong, my bouquet was beautiful.... 
  

(I wish I had one in color, but I don't while I am here at work on my lunch... I stole this off of my facebook page.  But, the peonies were white and pink with green hydrangeas and a darker pink gerber.)

Check out these next 2 and see if your favorite flower doesn't change:

Oh, and I am loving that dress...

It makes me want to plan another wedding.  I keep offering to divorce Mr. Hughes just so we can get remarried to each other and I get another wedding...  He doesn't seem up for it.  It isn't "cost-effective" or in our "budget."  C'mon!  What is he thinking?  I would even get to have a ring bearer this time, baby hughes, of course.

So, what is your favorite flower?

  3. Hmmmm! I always say carnations, but I love hydrangeas and peonies too. Might be a three way tie. The anemones are sure pretty. I may have to see if we get them locally.

    A second wedding (to my same guy) would be a fun thing, of course if it weren't so expensive. Several couples in our parish renew their vows and we may consider this when our 20th comes up in 2 years.

  6. I love ditch flowers! We have these little purple flowers that grow in the shaded ditches in central IL. They look like phlox, but I forgot the name of them. They smell AMAZING - they are free & absolutely my favorite flowers :)

  7. Actually my favorite flowers are peonies, funny enough. I did have them in my wedding bouquet. But I love those anenomes too.

  8. Ranunculus! Oh how I love them, but they don't grow so well in our hot weather. I lucked out and was able to have a beautiful bouquet of them for our wedding. Just wish I could grow them in my garden.

  9. I don't think that it is possible to have ONE favourite flower....there are too many beautiful ones. I love peonies, hydrangeas, violets, snowdrops, eucalyptus AND anenomes.....and many,many, more.
    You looked wonderful on your wedding day...I actually love your black and white photo. XXXX

  11. I love hydrangeas. My wedding bouquet was those, mini-calla lilies, white roses and bells of Ireland.

    But what I *really* love is finally seeing a picture of YOU! What a bee-yoo-ti-ful bride! And how funny that we'd both post wedding pics on the same day, eh? ;-)

    XO,

  14. wow ... someone else who loves anemones! I think we are a rare breed. I love, love, love them -- they're dramatic, but not too showy. I'm so glad to find fellow anemone lover!

  21. Love the wedding picture, so pretty! I've never heard of anemone flowers, but I can see why they're your favorite. I've always loved daffodils and dogwood flowers (although I couldn't figure out how to carry a tree down the aisle).

  22. OMG, Michelle you are so beautiful. What a gorgeous picture. You should do a post on your wedding. I would love to see the photos.

    I have always loved white flowers of any kind. I'm not too picky.

    My husband and I have been married 3 times. Never divorced just have renewed our vows over the last 30 years. Try it. It's fun.

  23. I have to admit...I am a pale pink peony lover! And lilacs rank right up there, too! (Do those count since they are technically a bush..hmmmm) Oh, and totally loving that wedding dress, too! ~mary~

  24. I love purple tulips, any color really. I love whatever is affordable at Kroger's to bring home to look at all week. I just had daffodils and they were so beautiful.

    Well, I guess you can't buy a bouquet for anniversaries to look at because they'll still be out of season. flower love, DeniseMarie
