- for romantic occasions she likes roses; they should be red or pink
- for special occasions she also likes roses, however, since her favorite are yellow roses (that was our "wedding" flower) I will get her one or more of them
- she also really likes irises and I've even brought her an orchid before (by the way, orchids are pretty cool flowers. They drink almost nothing and just need to be put in a window. Their blooms last for weeks and they are gorgeous)
Because I try to be creative and do kind things for my wife I learned a few years ago that it's not the flower that matters (except on Valentine's Day) it's the fact that I brought her flowers that counts. And, because there is beauty in pretty much all flowers, I began picking little wild flowers on my home from work to give her. Most of the time they are small and few in number but her eyes light up, she grins from ear to ear, and often she even giggles in delight (yes, she giggles). She's even excited with a dandelion or a clover flower.
Here's my challenge: pick a wildflower for your wife today, even if it is just a dandelion.
