My Favorite Flower

by Kay~Kacey on 5/10/2008

Astramaris, my favorite pick-up-at-the-grocery-store flower.

orange astramaris

I love the orange variety. Even if people spell this flower all sorts of ways. Astramaria. Alstroemeria. I love it no matter how you want to spell it.

red and pink astramaria

I love the dark pink and white ones.

astramaria in soft light

I love them in soft, delicate light. I especially love them when SuperGuy screws up sometimes and then brings them to me for a “please forgive me” present. Like these :mrgreen:

Me too! My Mother’s Day bouquet has a bunch of the orangey ones in it. It seems that technically speaking they should grow here so I am going to give them a try.

Awww, how sweet! And they’re so pretty!

I love those as well. In fact we used them in our centerpiece decorations on the tables in our wedding reception. But my entire life I have thought they were mini tiger lilies. LOL.

Very , very pretty.

Gorgeous. I like please forgive me flowers too. That and just for the heck of it flowers. Those are the best.

So pretty!!!

Kate May 10, 2008 at 2:25 pm

No. No. No. Super Guy did NOT screw up. There are just some things that I do not want to believe!!

Pics are nice, though!

Gorgeous photos!! Makes me wanna buy myself some “please forgive me” flowers. ONe can offend oneself, right?? LOL

So THAT’S what they’re called! You mean Super Guy makes male blunders occasionaly? There is a chink in his armor? Whew. All is right with the universe again!

They are absolutely gorgeous. Although, I must admit I’m a bit jealous that you get flowers ;-)

Please forgive me for not being around much lately. I got a full time job in addition to my Virtual Assistance work and housework… I’m still trying to figure out how to get everything done in a day ;-)

Every time I pick a favorite FLOWER, I change my choice….you’re lucky that you’ve found one and stuck with it!

My bf calls them “Be nice to me again” flowers! haha

saw these in the supermarket and loved them. I would like to use them as a centerpiece for a bridal rehearsal dinner. So, can these flowers be floated in a flower bowl with candles?

Kacey September 16, 2008 at 1:06 pm

I’m not sure, Sharon. They are a weird flower. They last forever in a vase, but the petals fall off easily. I’d say buy a bouquet and try it out.

Sharon October 2, 2008 at 9:05 am

another question – would these flowers be fine to put on top of a cake as part of my cake decorations? Not sure if these are on the poisonious flower list.

Kacey October 2, 2008 at 11:15 am

Wow, have not idea if these are poisonous or not. Pretty yes? Poisonous? No idea. They sure would look pretty on top of a cake though, wouldn’t they?
