Liz H said...

My favourite flower is roses, although I love all kinds of flowers!

Anne said...

How difficult to choose a favourite flower! Perhaps today it's the beautiful old rose that's blooming just outside the door. Every time I brush by it, a beautiful scent is released that brightens my day.

Miss Marple said...

Peonies are my all time favourite. Followed closely by all kinds of other (wild) flowers! - Irma

Rosanne said...

A beautiful orange Calendula!!

Saraccino said...

There are so many flowers I love but in the end there is no one like the morning glory for me. They grow so fast and high (even if they are only "yearly", they grow so fast, it doesn't matter) and form a green wall... and then they start blooming, every morning new flowers with purple, pink and white!

Rita Montgomery said...

I love lilies because there are so many different kinds.

I just love sunflowers, as they are big and bold, stand tall and proud against other plants and just sum up for me the joy of summer. When I see them they make me stand up taller and stop for a while.

Emilia said...

I love sunflowers.

Jensalittleloopy said...

Alla_Petra said...

Thank you Alisa for the opportunity! The class sounds great!
I love them all, but if I have to choose- I love Lilacs and Lavender, purple colors:)

Janea aka Naya said...

Pansies, Yellow Roses, Lilacs, Sweet Peas, and Apple Blossoms. All flowers of my childhood. It's hard to narrow it down to just one!

Lilacs for my Grandma L and Sweet Peas for my Grandma A. Those were their special flowers, and they remind me of them every time I see them.

Noelia said...

My fave flower comes from the JacarandΓ‘ ´s tree (please, if you´ve never heard of it, google it). Its violet and when they are in season you can find everyone´s front gardens with a violet floor! Stunning!
Also there is a popular song my mom used to sing to me when i was a kid, it talked about this tree and its flower ... it always brings me to tears.

Dawn Shadwick said...

Lilacs and Daffodils!!

PiHi said...

Hi! Gerber daisy is my favorite flower. I love especially ones with bright colors.

Kara Hoel said...

My favorite flowers are Indian paintbrush. They seemed so magical when I was a kid and I still love coming across them in the woods.

maeve said...

My favorite flower has to be the rose. Love to sketch it and paint it with watercolors. I'd love to win this course! :)

Cynthiacc said...

Hmmm, that is a difficult one! I would say my favorite flower is a Peony. The layers of beautiful petals and the scent is wonderful.....but maybe a poppy because of the color?

Dorothee said...

Poppies are my favourite flowers. What a lovely give away, thank you for the chance ��

Kelly R said...

I love Hydrangeas and roses. I would love to learn how to draw and paint roses.

Always, always daffodils - so bright and cheery after the long cold winter here in Michigan. The summer is for Sunflowers and the fall is for jewelweed.

Kathy Schultz said...

I just love Calla Lillies! they're simple, yet elegant!

Erin Sipes said...

Coneflowers, they're so pokie and yet still have delicate petals!

Dora said...

Roses are my favourites.

Lynda said...

WILD ROSES! They are definitely my favorite. They grow abundantly on the steep mountains of the Italian Alps, where I am now living. Flowers start early spring and mature into fruit in autumn (rosa canina), which accompany me throughout the long cold winter in the form of tea!! They are a yearlong companion.

Meghan Thimjon said...

One only one!!! I guess I would have to say peony!

Sue A said...

I love the fuchsia bloom. It's so fancy. I also am always impressed with the hibiscus.

marjolijn said...

This sounds like a great online workshop. And I love the way you teach. That is so inspiring.
I think my favorite flower is a poppy. It is so delicate, but full of color. Especially when I see them in the wild, next to other flowers. they brighten up the colors of the other flowers. That is so special!

kirstensdrawingboard said...

My favorite flower is a big ol' dalia. So huge and bright they defy gravity!

Jocelyn Brown said...

My favorite is peony!! I can't grow them here (too hot/dry) but I spend stupid amounts of money to buy them at florists or grocers when I find them. Such a beautiful, full flower.

MarieZ said...

Hi Alisa, my favourite flower is dahlia - and is blooming right now:)!

Phil and Cris said...

Plumerias are my favorite flowers - especially the pink ones with yellow centers. They smell heavenly!

KrissyB said...

This summer, I am loving my hollyhocks in the back yard. I planted a few of these flowers last spring and am enjoying the huge blossoms!

BlueBirdLegacy said...

Hi Alisa,
It's really hard to pick just one flower because I do enjoy them all.
But I would pick a Zinnia. They come in amazing colors, and I loved to pick them from Grandma's garden, when I was a little girl.
What a fabulous Giveaway!!

Paul Headley said...

I would have to say Blue Hydrangeas because of their color and you can enjoy them in summer as cut flowers then dry them to enjoy until they bloom again next year...Thank you for the chance to win a class with you, the Garden Journal looks like a fun one!

Marjan Faber said...
