How can I pick just ONE favorite flower. I too love lilies, especially the Oriental (fragrant) ones. They can perfume an entire neighborhood! And the old fashion flowers are so special to me since mother had lots of lilacs and peonies. Then are are all of the spring bulbs that are raised in the valleys around western Washington, my favorite are the daffodils. And I love sweet garden phlox too...oh my gosh!, have you ever smelled it on a warm summer afternoon?

OK, I want just a bit beyond one but what about Schizostylis (Kaffir Lily) in the fall and I love Widow's Tears and this year I put in some huge pots of dahlias and they are just now blooming!! I have 2 huge 1/2-wine barrels that are home to hyacinths in the early spring and nasturtiums all summer long. OK, time to

Chart...thanks for posting the Koffee Klatch. You are a huge help! If you get a chance can you email me, please?

If you're going through hell, keep going.

Like Chutz I can't pick just one, but hyacinths are so special to me since my mother loved them every Easter. I love to buy some and smell the aroma throughout the house, and just wish they had a longer season (maybe they do, but not in these parts!). And lilacs, again associated with my mother, as she had a huge bush we'd enjoy looking outside the dining room window.

Ahhh, the memories these bring back! I don't have a green thumb, so I have to enjoy what others plant, but that doesn't mean I love them any less!

This may be silly because they do not smell pretty and are almost considered weeds, but I love Sunflowers....I call them Happy flowers! I like roses and lillies too...but sunflowers make me smile!

Dani, don't you dare apologize!!! That is what family is all about...pitching in when someone in the family is struggling. Don't you let guilt rent space in your focus on feeling better and we'll take care of the housekeeping, okay??

My favourite flower is Gerbera Daisies - I love all the bright colours they come cheerful! I am also a huge fan of roses in every colour, shape and size!!

Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Severe Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoroacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily
