If I had a favorite flower . . .

This is a hard one, because I love all flowers. Except for possibly geum. I invited the geum for a visit but it took over the whole damn place. (MEMO TO GEUM: Work on your boundaries issue, okay? You'll keep friends that way.) If I had to say, though, I'd probably go, "peony!" I know they only bloom for about 5 seconds, but I love them in all their stages from their fresh red shoots to the pregnant buds (such drama!) to the blowsy sexy blossoms to the yellowing foilage in the fall. In my next life I hope I can be a peony farmer. Or maybe a backup singer in a blues band. Either one.

Nice choices. Especially the blues singer! I'm more of a wildflower person, so here are some of my faves (not that you asked):

Wild Blue Flax
Spring Beauty
Blazing Star
Fire Chalice
Woodland Star
Wart-berry Fairybell (I know!)

Peonies are the sexiest blooms ever.
