I mentioned this to my husband and he went out and bought Ranunculus bulbs the same day to plant in our yard! #396,000,001 reasons why I love him;)

  1. Love these flowers. I am all about Tulips and Gerber Daisies though. I just don't think you can look at either of those flowers and not be happy!

  8. Ranunculus is my favorite and simple though they are, I can't get enough of bright gerber daisies. This weekend my husband and I are heading out to get window boxes, soil, flowers and some herbs so we can have a little "garden." I'm hoping to get some ranunculus, but I don't know how they'll do in a box - we shall see!

  9. how sweet!! I love having fresh flowers in the house, but they are just SO SO expensive!! (plus, they die within a couple of days) But having them in your garden is even more wonderful :)

  14. you and I share the same taste in flowers. There is something about the perfectly round buds that open up in to little ruffles, and then become big and bloomed-out and almost gaudy before the petals fall away. I love them in every stage.

  15. Pretty!And so very sweet of your hubby :)

  16. I love Ranunculus's too! I tried to grow them from bulbs also but it didn't work out. Better luck to you!

    Right now I'm sticking with pansies, such vibrant color but easy to maintain ;)

  20. I love garden roses so much! I wanted peonies in my wedding bouquet but it was in August so they were out of season. My florist suggested using garden roses and I decided that I loved them even more than peonies. Mine were ivory and they were absolutely gorgeous!

    I'm hosting a necklace giveaway on my blog if you're interested!

  21. im going to have to see if rananculus can grow here. i'm planting peonies this year. dahlias are one of my faves! but they are annuals and i'm a much bigger fan of perennials! i love the garden/tea roses. so pretty!

  32. So perfect... I was actually planning to have peonies bouquet at my wedding (now postponed..) and the wedding planner suggested ranunculus cause in Brazil there are no peonies. I did some research at the time and loved them too, each of them have such interesting and beautiful shape!

    Hugs & kisses from Rio!
