But they are so PRETTY!!!
Kangirl, I love those pink peonies, they look like that silky pink wrapping paper they use in stores to protect delicate things.

Anyway, my actual favourites tend to be bright red, big and somewhat unusual looking.
Waratahs (native to Australia):
Protea (maybe from South Africa? dunno):

Besides Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis),
Geranium sylvaticum, it brings my childhood to mind.
And Comarum palustre. I love the old fashioned look it has, and the color..
Aww, I completely forgot about forget-me-nots
My fav colour and such a sweet little flower

Orchids, because of their singular, temperamental beauty.
Carnations, because they're ruffles upon ruffles and they smell so good.
