this is very good list of beautiful flowers but my favorite one is the bluebells. I like it because well, it reminds me of the time I got in love with a darling beautiful ratlette. Of course, I broke up with her but I could still remember her because I thought she is my darling ratlette. I kept on searching for her until one day I found out she died because a cat killed her.
