Roses.

Not because it's the most beautiful flower, but my dad loved roses and I have some wonderful memories from my very young age working in the flower gardens around the house with him.

You won't survive 'today' without a sense of humor and neither will you get into Hell without one. At all costs ignore Dante.

I sit at the end also, it gives the person at the opposite end enough time to get drunk and find me attractive.

It's hard to pick a favorite, although I do love irises.  I've been a member of the local iris society for about 3 years.  Also, roses, orchids, and many more.

From our garden last spring:

I was going to say the cauli-flower, because not only can you look at it, you can eat it as well.  However, to be serious, although so many flowers are beautiful I have always thought that the orchid was a kind of level above, a flower with a unique quality.  Back in my teenage days, when I would take a date to a formal dance, I would usually give my date a corsage of roses, unless she was very very special to me, in which case I would splurge on an orchid corsage.

For fragrance, the mock orange, which I only recently found out the name. It's a flowering bush, not common in a bouquet.

512

And for some reason, I've always found lavender colored roses to be especially fragrant. Considered a flowering bush, but common in a bouquet.

My favorite tree flower though, is the Purple Robe Locust; not common in a bouquet:

Blanket flower....

and red clover or white clover.  It is good for the ground and bees love it.
