    I am paging through my gardening catalogs, and its a nice warm day here in Wis. (40!!!!)
    I am SO wishing for Spring.....cant wait to see my tulips poke out of the ground!
    I really dont think I have a favorite, I love them all, but love pinks and purples, blues, whites...............
    I have a collection of diffrent irises, planted all around my garden fence. I am hoping they will spread.
    Do you have a favorite flower?

    Daisies. Any kind of daisy. And wildflowers. Oh and Japanese latterns. They grow here, I think they can grow in WI, too.

    I love sweet peas, irises, and lilacs. A few years ago, I won a "Best of Show" ribbon with a sweet pea. Some people who visited the show thought it was an orchid. LOL

    Darlow's Enigma.

    Plant that rose bush under your windows and it will catch and hold burglars until the police arrive (the neighbors will call 911 for you when they hear all that screaming).

    Roses - have over 12 varieties in my rose garden.
    Iris - had 3 large areas - until the gardener let Bermuda grass into 2 out of 3 beds. Plan this year to clean-out & re-plant.
    Sunflowers - Love them but haven't grown any - yet!

    I love lots and lots of different flowers.
    Columbines, Alstromeria's, Roses, Pansy's, Lilacs, Hibuscus, Oriental Lillies, Fresias, Iris's, Calla Lilly's...... Especially love pretty smelling ones!!!

    I have about 36 large rose bushes, all are highly scented, and about another 2 dozen miniature roses!

    I like lillies, but I can't grow anything, so we just have grass and a couple of trees.

    Roses, lilacs, Sweet Peas, and Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate. All kinds of "grandma flowers". When we lived in the city my neighbor lady said I had a "grandma" yard, (clothesline, flowers, veggie garden, shed, etc,...) she said she loved to look out her dining room window into our back yard because it reminded her of her sweet Grandma. I took it as a great compliment. Sorry---think I got a little OT
