Tuesday 4: Flowers

Good morning! I'm linking up today with Annie for the Tuesday 4, the meme started by Toni Taddeo and continued in her memory.  Today we are talking about flowers.

1. Do you have a favorite flower?  Sunflowers are my favorite with zinnias and marigolds a close second. They are so bright and happy looking. You can't help but smile when you see a patch of any of them growing.

2. Do you know your birth flower? I believe August's flower is the gladiolus. How about your state's flower? Pennsylvania's state flower is the mountain laurel.

3. Is there a plant you love having in the house or garden?  I don't really have a favorite, but I love having house plants. My grandmother had over 100 plants in her house and her gardens overflowed. I don't have anywhere near as many, nor do I have her talent in keeping them healthy. I do keep a few at all times, though. I always have a philodendron. There is often a spider plant. Other than that it's whatever catches my eye. I like plants with splashy colored leaves.

4. If you could plant a dream garden what would you place in it?  I'm not sure other than sunflowers and zinnias. I would have to go through the catalogs and choose things that draw birds and butterflies. I'd also have a vegetable garden. I'd need a couple of chickens too to keep the bugs under control.

  5. I love that bouquet above! Beautiful colors and flowers! I love roses and mums and peonies(except they don't grow in Florida) and Lilacs, which again, don't grow in Florida! Mostly, I like wildflowers that I don't have to worry about and they just grow naturally!

  8. We have the same birthday month so same flowers. I will have to try growing a sunflower next year. I use to grow houseplants, but this house is too small. My crafting has taken over my interest. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  9. I like sunflowers too. Artificial ones decorate the inside of the house. I try to plant Giant Sunflowers in the yard every year too. They're so hardy. My birth month is May, so, I think my flower is Lily Of The Valley. Yeah, I know, the flower one uses to symbolize death. Just my luck. *lol* Have a blessed day! xx
