Favorite Flowers

Spring blooms may fade and wilt away, but the enjoyment of a picture, a memory of a scent or a time and place can last a lifetime. We asked Living the Country Life Facebook readers to tell us about their favorite flower.

    Lilacs and crocus

    I have two favorite flowers: lilacs and crocus, because they remind me of my youth.

    There was a lilac tree near our driveway where my best friend and I stood posing for prom pictures. The first sign of springtime at Iowa State University was the crocus that dotted the ground beside the pathways between my dormitory and campus. I cherished seeing those purple petals and I told my daughter to watch for them as she walked the same sidewalks this year.


    Lilacs are the best smelling thing ever, and I believe heaven will smell like lilacs!

    I miss smelling lilacs. They grew along side the country roads where I lived. When you drove past them with your windows down it was so sweet.

    I remember working in the flower beds with my Daddy. He would share with me his interesting stories about his life and career as an officer in the Air Force.

    Crabapple trees smell great.

    My crabapple tree is beautiful and the branches are heavy with all the flowers.

    -- Misty La Mont

    My Magnolia tree is my favorite! This year was not a good year because frost got most of the blooms! It is too big to protect.

    -- Judy Huges

    My favorites are the China berry or Texas umbrella tree blossoms, honeysuckle, and magnolia blossoms.
