    1. Renee – I am probably the only girl in the world who doesn’t like roses – I had a semi stalker when I waited tables in college who would bring me a dozen roses every week. He turned me off the flowers (although I do love rose bushes – have a bunch in front of my house)

  1. Love the tulips, I think I will go with what I LOVE the smell of best and thats lilacs with gardenias coming in a close second Happy WW thanks for hosting

    1. Lucy – Thanks! Roses are beautiful, but I don’t like them… It is amazing how a person can turn you off flowers….

    1. Inner Chick – I never thought of it that way, but since you mention it… I am so glad my client sent me tulips and not carnations! 🙂

    1. Old Kitty – I always forget what peonies are… I had to google it and I agree, they are beautiful! We had a random batch of flowers show up a few weeks ago (whick of course I killed) that I thought were roses. But after looking at the picture of the peonies I think that is what they were….

    1. Lisa – Peonies are beautiful… It is sad, so many flowers (including when they are still growing) don’t last long…

    1. Beth Ann – I love daisies too… There are a lot of daisies where I live and I love when they bloom – so pretty!

  2. Hi Hilary, Thanks for coming to visit us at the 3-D Cats blog. Domino is my little ladycat who was dressed up as a fairy.

    These tulips are gorgeous, and have always been a most welcome sign of spring where I live (in Ottawa, Ontario Canada). Indeed, tulips are very special to us. During WWII Queen Juliana of the Netherlands spent the duration in Ottawa because of the Nazi occupation of her own country. Afterwards, in thanks, she sent 100,000 tulip bulbs to the City. At the same time, she promised Ottawa an annual gift of tulips during her lifetime to show her lasting appreciation for Canada’s war-time hospitality. Each year, in May, Ottawa hosts the Canadian Tulip Festival in celebration of this gift.

    However, my personal favourite is deep red roses.

    I always like meeting new friends, and when I do I usually ask them if they would like to be featured on my blog “Wendy’s LOL-Spot”. The link is http://wendyslolspot.blogspot.com is you want to take a peek. Just leave a comment there if you are agreeable. I need your permission to copy pictures of Alex from your blog to turn him into a LOL-Cat.

    1. Wendy – wow! Thanks for such an amazing comment… I love learning something! I never even heard of Queen Juliana – but the story reminds me of the college I went to (which I forgot about). I don’t fully remember the details but the founder was dutch and was responsible for planting a ton of tulips…. over the years the college made sure to keep the tulips alive and add more… Springtime there was always beautiful!

    1. Angela – nope – which is the way I like to receive gifts best… they were actually from a client who was saying “thanks”

  3. Dear Hilary and Alex
    Me really enjoyed the engagement! And Me and my hairy slobbery sister Bob wants to thanks yous for your kind words. Bob is a little worried abouts the operation but she says she has not been able to sees out of that eye for awhile. She will be happy when the headaches is gone.
    Kisses
    Nellie

    1. Nellie – I am glad you guys made the party… I am sure that Bob is scared…. but tell her to think of Alex and use him as her inspiriation!

    1. Ms. Latina – we just started growing roses outside my house… I love them on the bush…. and the smell is still great

  4. Trilliums; they’re a lovely wildflower that blooms briefly.

    Here in Ottawa we have ourselves a tulip festival each spring. Millions of them get planted.

    1. William – someone else mentioned tulips and Ottawa… I love learning about other places… and the festival sounds amazing!

    1. Jennifer – I love daisies too and have to control myself from not doing the “he loves me / he loves me not” with them.
