The smell of flowers...

So I LOVE flowers. LOVE them. I love to grow them, smell them, water them, plant them, touch them, draw them, look at them, and take care of them. I like living flowers or plants though--not dead flowers someone brings you in a vase. I want to watch them grow and thrive... to pick the dead heads off and see new growth within a day or two.

So while out in Colorado I was not only impressed with the wonderful always-springlike weather, but more about how that made the flowers thrive. While walking in Frisco with Jeff I decided to take some shots of the lovely things. Here are the ten best. Tell me which ones you like the best--and also, what is your favorite type of flower?

Oops, typos the first time around on the comment. Anywho, I love the shot of the red columbine. My favorite flower to grow would be irises. My favorite flower to receive as a gift would be pink roses (not red, not peach) or stargazer lillies.
