Garden Blogger's Bloom Day: Thank You Mr. Wonderful

2009_0215image0016I don't have any house plants so it has been months since I've participated in Garden Blogger's Bloom Day.

But, thanks to my guy sending me these beautiful flowers for Valentine's day, I'm so in for February!

I love getting flowers on Valentine's day but I have to say that ever since I've started gardening, I'm always hoping he'll send me something I can plant that will live on. Like a David Austin Crown Princess Margareta or any other David Austin English Rose (hint hint in case he's reading this).

2009_0215image0008 He hasn't always sent me flowers on Valentine's day. This started several years ago but bless his heart, he's had trouble every year. The worst one was a couple of years ago when they didn't deliver any flowers at all on February 14th but delivered them twice on February 15th. He was so mad! The hard thing is that he sits around all day wondering if they'll show up, probably thinking I'm thinking he's a loser (which I'm not!) for not remembering. Then he ends up telling me about it so that I can participate in the trouble-shooting. This time, they showed up perfectly. These mail-order florists make it so much easier since the delivery man is the mail man who knows how to deliver packages.

2009_0215image0004 I should also say that these are the best V day flowers ever. I love the purple Iris with the white Lily. Awesome choice, honey!

So, that's that. Be sure to drop by over at May Dream's Gardens where Carol hosts Garden Blogger's Bloom Day on the 15th of every month (no matter what!)

  5. Lilies & Irises are a much more inspired choice than Roses. They are lovely.

  6. Beautiful blooms Gina. I can practically smell lilies from here! They are definitely one of my favorite flowers.

  7. Those ARE lovely. I got a poem this year, no flowers, bit that was OK.
