Valentine's Day is the busiest day for florists all over the world.  It is the day when practically everyone sends flowers to their sweetheart.  When it comes to Valentine's Day roses seem to be the obvious choice.  Yet, not everyone is gaga over roses. What is your favorite flower?

I know each flower has a different meaning, but sometimes we as women overlook it, because we like certain flowers.

For instance, roses are OK, but I only like the bi-color roses.  Truly, my favorite flower is the Gerbera daisy, followed by hydrangea, followed by the tulip.

The Gerbera Daisy

It is big and bright and comes in multiple colors.  It isn't your average daisy.  It is a mutant colorful version.

This is a beautiful flower that looks like it has tiny little flowers in a big ball.  Colors vary from, white, pink, and purple/blue.  My favorite is the purple/blue.  This plant grows as a bush and can grow in the Panhandle but it is very difficult to keep it alive.



Tulips are beautiful flowers and are perfect to send to someone you love.  No they aren't known as a "romantic" flower but I think they are just as pretty as roses, and come in an array of colors.  They are beautiful cut, or even better potted.  You can always replant a potted tulip and enjoy the flowers for years to come.

Bi-Color Roses

I know roses are the go to romantic flower, but in all honesty for myself, I would prefer the three flowers above first.  However, if you are going to go roses, then the bi-color roses are gorgeous.
