  • I think they are pretty but I don't care for the smell. My favorite flower is the lilac.

  • I love wild rose bushes, they smell so good in the summer in our backyard.. I want to plant some mini roses in my front flower garden this spring.
    As for cut roses, they're nice but I would rather have something a bit more unique.

  • I do go gaga...... they just mean looooove to me :)

    other flowers are lovely, I actually like them all.... but to receive from my DH.... yes yes

    I am at a point in life now, though, where flowers aren't special anymore. I know how much nice ones cost and that they're dead in 10+ days.... I'd rather have a pedicure or pay a bill, lol!

  • I love roses on the bush. I like them in the vase too as long as they are a unique color.

  • My favorite flowers are Forget-Me-Nots

    I do not like cut flowers, seems like a waste of a perfectly good, living plant.

  • my mom's a florist. I think roses are like the queen of the flowers...I think they are the symbol of LOVE. But all FRESH flowers are beautiful! Love em!

  • No, they are the 'standard" easy flower that every man gets..their so easy to get u just go to walmart and buy not trying to sound ungrateful but when I get flowers I want some thought to be put into DH knows my favorite flowers are Stargazer Lily's although I dont expect them often because they are expensive...but I like different flowers...I dont mind a mixed bouquet with roses, as long as it isnt only I know im weird ...i guess im just used to DH spoiling me with flowers :)

  • I love them.  They're romantic and they are also England's national floral emblem, so I guess I biased since I'm English.

  • i agree with anon, they are kind of standard and it kind of gives a guy an easy gift to give a woman when they need a way out of spending time thinking of what to get you. I like them, but i don't love them to the point where ever time i get them i'm like "awwwww!". i think the prettiest flowers are cherry blossoms on the tree, it's just so pretty to look at especially when the flowers are being blown off by the wind. it's just a pretty scene i guess.
