Roses are so cliche and yet so loved. They are pretty but if my lover (knew better) brought me roses they would be sleeping in the doghouse. In general, I don’t find flowers that romantic because they die. It’s like they are saying, “I love you, but one day I may not.”
If you have to have/give flowers, why not get something more original than roses. It is fine if you love roses, roses are great then. But other flowers deserve love as well. Personally I prefer black and white Calla Lilies. They are beautiful on their own and pair well with others.
Orchids are great as well and seem to be resilient. They tend to last longer as well. I watch too much TV, so I find the blood splatter looking ones prettier than others. I also like black ones, but I’m a weird dark person like that.
Daisies are a bit hokey, in my opinion, and again give off a crappy vibe. They are one of the types that are used to play the “he loves me, he loves me not game.” Who wants to place their chances of love on a flower?
I’m just not a big fan of tulips.
Poppies are beautiful but delicate. They are also associated with fallen soldiers.
What is your favorite flower and why?
