Small Talk Six: I Heart Exotic Flowers

Ahhhh, flowers…  I haven’t thought about my favorite flowers in almost 16 years.  My husband has severe allergies, so flowers are a big no~no in our house.  But thanks to the ladies at, for a few minutes I can remember what it’s like to have flowers all around me.  Today’s Small Talk Six topic is to name “6 of your favorite flowers.”

I used to live in New Orleans, Louisiana (shout out to Dillard University, my old stomping ground) and I’ve been heavily influenced by its beauty, mystery and uniqueness.  That place is a feast for the senses ~ the colors, the smells, the tastes, the sounds….New Orleans even has a tactile quality.  Therefore, my favorite flowers reflect bits and pieces of New Orleans and it’s exotic beauty:

Calla Lily
Passion Vine Flower
Tiger Lily
Trumpet Vine
Wild Iris
