Favourite Flowers

by greenrabbitdesigns

It’s no secret that I love flowers, goodness knows you all see enough of them here on my blog!
However much I love them all, some flowers appeal to me more than others.

I’m really drawn to the type of flower that reminds me of the drawings I did as a child, you know the kind with petals all around the centre all nicely spaced out and symmetrical. Truth is I still draw flowers like that. When I’m on the phone I often have a whole garden doodled on a post-it note or when I can get no further with a crossword or suduko the newspaper is covered in little perfectly shaped flowers.

So that’s why pretty flowers such as daisies of all kinds, cosmos and rudbeckia are among my favourites.

My absolute favorites though are sunflowers, sadly though I haven’t had much luck with mine this year due to a combination of greenfly, slugs, snails and high winds. This one is getting closer to opening. One of my favourite photos from last summer was this one. They are such amazing plants!

Perhaps my love of such perfectly shaped blooms is why I enjoy crocheting little flowers so much!

Well here we are at another weekend, I hope it’s happy and sunny for all of us! Thanks as always for popping in here this week, I do love your visits! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love your little crocheted dainties – they look good enough to eat! I too like simple flowers like the daisy family. Have a good weekend.

I love flowers too, Your crocheted corsages look wonderful and beautifully displayed on the pink glass…. apologies for the two comments, my 1st one seemed to get gobbled up, I was just checking to see if they were displayed straight away!

Your flowers are so pretty and your crocheted flowers are just as lovely.
They look so nice displayed on the glass tray.
Happy weekend!

Snap, I doodle loopy symmetrical flowers if I’m on the phone. It must have some deep meaning don’t you think!
Happy weekend x

Snap! I still draw daisy-like flowers now; I cannot manage anything more complex. Beautiful photos. It’s lovely to pop in and see your blog after my holidays. It’s a very cheering place to be ๐Ÿ˜‰

I too love flowers Vivienne, I am always intrigued how much symmetry there is in nature…..wonderful stuff eh! My daughter is actually thinking of having sunflowers for her bridesmaids flowers!Your corsages are always beautiful, that’s lovely wool you have used. It’s been pretty dull here the last few days, I could do with some sunshine in my garden for the weekend.
Enjoy yours and see you next week,

Tee hee! Next time I do a crossword I’m gonna fill in all the elusive squares with flowers too. Love that idea!

I love the beads/buttons you have used in the centre of your flowers – really, really, pretty!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Those are my favorite too! Big Shasta Daisies …. Guess hubby got off easy because daisies are much cheaper than roses. Black eyed susans remind me of my grandmother because she always had them by her front door. I also really love those strawberry colored sunflowers — ahhhhh ๐Ÿ™‚

Loving all the flowers, from the garden and from your hook ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Viviennne
Thanks for your lovely comment on Bustle & Sew – thought I’d stop by your blog – and I loved your “shy” sunflower, not quite showing its petals yet! I’ve never really looked at their shapes before they open, but you’ve opened my eyes and I will be studying them more carefully now.

do you mind if i knit August 14, 2011 - 11:11 am

I really like the lines on the petals of those flowers you show. And that sunflower pic from last year is remarkable! Your crochet flowers also remind me of little cakes spattered with dessicated coconut! They really do look edible! Vanessa xxx

I love daisy type flowers too, Vivienne! Your pictures and crochet ones are lovely. (I did some crochet flowers last week too – very simple ones though as I’ve never done them before!!) I was interested to hear that you doodle little daisies when on the phone etc – I always doodle little hearts. Have a lovely week – hope it’s sunny!
