Which flowers do you remember seeing first when you were a child, flowers that made an impression?
I can name a few. First there were mom's carnations, "pinks" as she called them. They were the only flower she grew in the garden, a pale pink version with a wonderful fragrance. She was not much of a gardener, but she loved keeping a big bunch of these growing for the fragrance. Lots of Foxglove and Bluebells grew wild along the side of ditches, and I recall taking great chances to reach them so I could pick a few stems. Lastly, there are two neighbours I remember by the flowers that most impressed me in their garden. On one side I discovered snapdragons, and on the other I found the most wonderful dark blue/purple iris. That iris had the most wonderful fragrance in the heat of summer. It was not the large bearded type, but another variety.
