Pick her favorite, anything other than roses. Girls seem to love daisies and tulips. If you feel that you must send roses, I'd steer clear of red. It just seems too serious.

I agree with lucky53s. I would much rather have tulips than roses. Go with what she likes.

I like live flowers. Buy her an orchid.

If not, I agree with others that roses are to be avoided.

Purple you say ... Maybe too much $ though.

The roses I've purchased from here have been very good.

Towlie, right now the reason the tulips are so expensive is because tulips are spring time flowers. In able to get them during winter, they have to be hot house grown ($$$).

This may sound cheesy but sometimes....handpicked flowers from somebody yard, nicely arranged in a vase can mean a LOT more than one from a delivery place.

That means he took the time out to pick them, put them in a vase (haphazardly at that) and bring them to me.

That is waay more special than any kind of money a guy can spend.....TIME, THOUGHT and CARE.

But then again, that's just me.

But, that being said...my boyfriend also knows, that I am cheap and hate seeing money spent on something that is going to die in a very short period of time... He knows I would rather have a plant or something I can keep forever. Is she a flower person? Some women are...obviously some are not....

A single white rose is nice. Even better if it's home grown.

Dunno where he lives, but my world is -20C right now, with a lot of snow on the ground. No handpicking flowers here........

The first flowers I ever sent my wife, forty years ago, were pink roses. Red was just too passionate for a 17 year old boy.

I'm glad i don't live in one of those cultures.

She told me those where her favorites. It's one of those things that i've put on the "DO NOT FORGET" list.

Hey Psydotek!

Just so you NEVER forget, how about a white rose plant? Put it in the yard and she will always have her white roses!!
