Have you ever seen a sweetheart flower?

Do you know what it is?

It’s a wildflower your sweetie gives you when you’re hiking together!

I know….I am totally spoiled!

We sure saw a lot of pretty wildflowers on our hike and then when we got to the greenhouses, I took these photos of the flower beds there.

Here’s another sweet flower, a beautiful gardenia.

 

My girlfriend Sharon from Alabama sent me this photo. She and I are penpals and good friends.

Yes I posted to-night my walk with flowers.

Spring is in the air for all of us..

Love your violas.

I used the daisy when I was young. He loves me, loves me not.

He loved me and married me. You too?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Beautiful flowers, Diane! My Mother's favorite flower was gardenia, as my dad brought her a gardenia corsage when they had their first date, so it was always so special to her.

Deb Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Mary Howell Cromer said...

So pretty and did you do the loves me, loves me not on those petals after the image was taken;') Have a great week~

Vee said...

Oh yes, and did you "test" his love? I figure one can always get that to work out right if a gal is thinking. Beautiful photography, Diane, and as sweet as this header is, I miss that other one. Can you stick it on the side or something? =D

Cottage and Broome said...

I love gardenias! We don't have them up north but I love to see and smell them when I'm down south. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

Faye said...

Very romantic--it's the little things that mean so much. And it looks like you timed your visit just right for the arboreutum.

Donna said...

I love these little photo walks!

Diane Writes said...

Flowers never fail to make anyone smile. Even the grouchiest person can earth can smile with the mere sight of flowers. Right?

Thank you for forever linking up namemate! Hope you are having a great week!

Becca said...

Aw...what a "sweetie!" That gardenia has me thinking about the one I have in a container on my deck that has never bloomed. The leaves are green, and it appears healthy, it even made it through the winter, but when the buds appear and I think it's going to bloom the buds die...so weird. Happy weekend to you!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So sweet! Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday...
Blessings,
Cindy
