Floral Cheer

Certain flowers have the power to cheer. For me, tulips are first. They always make me smile. Narcissus are a close second, and maybe iris. No, it’s got to be peonies – though when I see and sniff a peony there is more than simple cheer – there are deeper emotions involved in a  peony. So while it may be my favorite flower, the peony isn’t the first to cheer me. I know daisies make Suzie and JoAnn happy, and the Gerbera daisy tickles my friend Sherri’s fancy. While I’ve never grown them, ranunculus, with their deliciously twisted name, have always cheered me upon sight, though I’ve yet to buy a bunch. Maybe that will change soon. We all need a little cheer these days. In the meantime, here’s the best I can do.
