    I love all kinds of flowers: sunflowers make me happy, always love poppies and morning glories are a childhood fave!


  2. Barb

    Love, Lisa! Such a fun interview!

    Since I work with flowers on a daily basis, this is a tough question for me. It’s a toss-up between Hyacinth and Peonies.


  3. Marie

    Dandelions are my favorites…the easiest to grow, beautiful when you wish on them and the greens are good for you!


  4. ThePurplePlace

    Picking only one flower is really hard, I love so many! I guess my favorite would be one that is Purple, of course and that would be an Iris. I also love purple pansies, black-eyed Susan’s, daisies, Gerber Daisies and so many more! One of my major loves of Summer is having flowers in my yard and planters….so pretty!!

    PS: It was wonderful to see Lisa here today, she’s another of my favorite designers and I subscribe to her blog too!


  5. Maureen Hayes

    My favorite flower is the daisy. I think they look happy, almost like a smiley face! I even carried them in my wedding years ago.

    I have to admit something I hope you will find funny. . . I had always thought that Lisa’s blog name was SideNOTES and scribbles. . . Lol! So today I learned that not only was I wrong, but what sideOATS are! πŸ™‚



  6. Judy

    I have always admired Lisa’s work so it was fun to learn more about her. My favorite flowers are tulips and zinnias.


  7. BarbGhig

    Really fun interview, Chaitali! I adore Lisa Spangler, so it was really great learning more about her…Thank you!
    My favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy…I love all the bright colors we have to choose from, and how pretty they look in a vase with a little babiies breath:-)


  8. Lisa Tatem

    Hard to choose, but tulips came to mind first, so they must be my favorite….then hydrangeas, daisies, sunflowers, ETC! πŸ™‚


  9. irene G.

    I love Japanese magnolias and dogwoods — I’d never seen either until I moved to Iowa. But my FAVORITE flower, because I love its scent the most, is jasmine. Love that smell!


  10. Debbie A.

    I love hydrangeas, they dry beautifully so you can decorate with them throughout the year. Such a fun interview, I loved getting to know Lisa! πŸ™‚


  11. dottiej27

    who could possibly pick just one? I keep flowers in my house almost all the time and my favorite is whichever one is in bloom at the moment. Oriental lilies, white roses, and hydrangeas probably top the list of favorites. Come to think of it, all three together would be stunning!


  12. Sue D

    Great episode and cards. I have lots of favorite flowers but since it is summer I will pick sunflowers–they make me smile.


  13. KatieP

    Fantastic episode ladies. Love hearing more about the designers. Always love Lisa’s laugh, it is infectious like Julie E.
    I am not sure which is my favorite flower, I have always liked pansies, since High School. My date for the senior prom(1975–teased that he would have gotten my corsage of pansies if they could be made. I lived in Ft. Worth, TX at the time.) I LOVE the fragrance of gardenias. I enjoy daisies and love mini roses and carnations.

    I always love seeing your interviews…your sweet personality shines through! Also, Lisa’s cards couldn’t be cute!! LOVe that little gnome!! As for my favorite flower, that would be the Iris. The purple iris is just fabulous!!
