  134. Hi Mary, I too live in the desert and do love our spring colors. I grew up in Massachusetts and I have always loved the crocus, they would be the first flowers to peak out of the snow and announce that spring was on it’s way! Have a lovely day.

  135. I’ve never met a pretty flower I didn’t like; however, my favorite flowers are lilacs. Love the smell! Just wish they lasted longer.

  136. Linda Robertson

    Oh my gosh…so many beautiful flowers to choose from. I lived in Mississippi for a few years then back to Arizona. The flowers there were gorgeous with no effort to grow. I loved the buttercups, the azaleas, crepe myrtle, lilies, gladiolas, butterfly bush, and so many more. But one of my favorite blooms to admire is the iris. I never knew how many colors they come it. I so miss all the flower beds I had back there. The tulips were one of the earliest to come up in early spring. I have seen them come up and bloom through the snow. Also the crocus. Spring always put a smile on your face after a dreary winter.

  137. Tulips are my favorite by far! Thanks for the blog candy. I’m keeping my fingers crossed :).

  138. My favorite is a rose and how easy to create them with the die cut.

  145. Valari Biccum

    Pretty please…I need some tulips here in NY..seems like the longest winter ever!! They’re myfavorite, but in the meantime, your fresh, springlike card inspirations will get me thru it!! Thanks, Mary.

  146. One more vote for the daffodils! One reason is being that the deer won’t feast on them like they do on most of the other spring flowers. It may be June in our part of the world before we see them this spring with the winter we have had. Thanks again for the wonderful blog and sharing both your talent and those of your pals. You are truly an inspiration to all of us who follow you. Can’t wait to see your new craft space. Oh, and thanks for the opportunity to win blog candy.

  165. I get excited each time I see a new bud popping through the snow. Today the hyacinths are peeking through. I’d have to say though that I especially love tulips. They’re even a meditation visual I use and once was my personalized license plate.

  166. Love the pink blooms on the Magnolia Trees in Spring

    Lilacs….as a young teenager we had a hedgerow of lilacs just under my bedroom window…the fragrance permeated my room in the evenings when I went to bed.

When I’m out for my noontime walk, I see a few hearty ones who are raising their yellow crowns tall to the sky; they make me smile and remind me of all God’s creation!

  300. Nancy Schultz Toops

    Are there any more beautiful springtime flowers than the tulip? Personally, I don’t think so. They are not too elegant, too romantic, too big, too small, or too bright; the tulip is always just right. They are like a favorite pair of jeans or your mom’s fresh-baked cookies in that the meanings of tulips express genuine coziness and comfort in all of the right ways. Happy spring stamping friends!

  373. hope mitchell

    My favorite Spring flower is the Snow Bell. These courageous, tiny souls peek out before any crocus, tulip, hyacinth or daffodil dares. They battle multiple snowfalls ready to manifest themselves when the sun reduces some of the snow’s layers to equalize the “growing field” a little. They are the “warm-up” act for the others! Love them.

  374. Leslie Edrington

    My favorite spring time flower? Well I actually have more than one. I love the bright fresh look of Tulips in all of the colors & varieties but I also like the “happy” yellow color of Daffodil’s. But I would have to say that my most favorite flower that comes in the spring is the Pansy! I love, love, love the cute colorful “faces” of the Pansy. It reminds me of my Grandmother. She had so many of these darling little colorful flowers in her yard and whenever I look at Pansies it reminds me of her:)

  375. I love carnations for their fragrance and that they last so long. Have a nice day.

  376. I love carnations for their fragrance and that they last so long. Have a nice day.

  377. I love carnations for their fragrance and that they last so long. Have a nice day.

  378. Laura Borchert

    It’s a toss up between tulips and apple blossoms!

  379. I love carnations!

  380. I love carnations!

  381. I love carnations!

  382. I love the look of tulips and daffodils but can’t forget the smell of lilac…they just come later ..spring is a happy time! But Mary following your remodel and cards has surely helped get through a very long and brutle winter. 🙂 thanks for sharing.

  383. Mary, I love all spring flowers but my favorite is the tulip, so many beautiful colors. Thanks for the chance to win candy. I love your blog, and look at it everyday for inspiration.

  384. I would have to say my favorite springtime flowers are tulips and daffodils. They just scream spring! I’m so ready!

  385. My favorite spring time flower are the daffodils. Just love the bright yellow in the sunshine.

  386. Daffodils! They’re always the first sign of Spring to me.

  387. Mary – I am really a lover of all flowers. Living in the Pacific Northwest, when I see the wild rhododendrons blooming I know that we can count on spring to be right around the corner. However, when I was growing up, I lived in Eastern Washington and the lilacs there were just amazing. And the smell filled the air with the greatest perfume. And I did hook up with Nadie. Thanks so much!!!

  388. Stephanie Jager

    I love lilacs. My aunt (a second mother to me) had them in her yard. I used to spend a lot of time with her and their smell brings back
    wonderful memories.

  389. Daffodils! They’re always the first sign of Spring to me!

  390. Very “Springy” Blog Candy. The crocus is my favorite and probably the earliest of all Spring flowers. I used to pick three each Spring from the hill pasture behind our home, then gift God’s flowers to my mother.

  391. Since I’m living the frozen north, any flower would be glorious. Although, I would have to say that my favorite is the hyacinths. I love their smell! Thank you for all the wonderful cards and ideas.

  392. Hi Mary, I LOVE your web site. The cards you create are beautiful. Thank you for being an inspiration! My favorite spring time flower is the petite, delicate Lily of the Valley. I wish they bloomed longer – I love their scent. 🙂

  393. I love hyacinths. They smell so wonderful. Just oozes spring when they start blooming.

  394. I love it when my lilac bush blooms. It is so large you can smell them all over my yard.

  395. My favorite spring flower is the daffodil. It signals the coming of spring. I am delighted to see the daffodils blooming in my garden even though there is still a chill in the air.

  396. I can’t pick just ONE, Mary! 🙂 I absolutely LOVE tulips, iris, & hyacinth! Happy Spring!

  397. My favorite springtime flower is the lilac. I just love the way they smell – heavenly! But after the winter we’ve had, I’ll take any kind of spring flower – I just want to see some!

  398. My Favorite Spring flower is the Tulips! My daughter sent me a beautiful bouquet in February for my Birthday!!!
    What a nice collection of “blog candy”, thanks for the chance to win!

  399. I have to say my lovely Daffodils. I just LOVE them plus the yellow is my absolute favorite color!! So sunny and bright and they grow like wild flowers here in the PNW!! Just heavenly every time I see them. 🙂

  400. My favorite flower is the Gardenia it give out a fragrant white flowers. Another common name is Cape Jasmine. When I am working in my garden I love it’s smell. The flower comes out mid spring and summer.

  401. Janet Cromwell

    Definitely the tulips! What glorious colors! I’l looking forward to seeing them bloom this year.

  402. My favorite Spring flowers are violets. The grow wild in the woods around my house and smell heavenly.

  403. My favorite would be the daffodils! They always look happy even when we get a surprise March snow here in New Mexico!!

  404. Laura Knobel-Piehl

    Mary, my favorite flower to look at is a daffodil, but after long Minnesota winters, the heady smell of the hyacinth is by far my favorite to snuffle ravagingly. 🙂

  405. I am not sure if this is a Spring flower, but it is my favorite. Queen of the Night only blooms once a year for a couple of hours. It is a desert cactus flower, and a wonderful perfume is made from it. This is my fav! Love what you do Mary . . . . would love to meet you some day!

  406. I have a difficult time picking any one flower because God made so many beautiful ones and the ones that smell good when they bloom is even better. Thank you for a chance to win some blog candy.

  407. My favorite is tulips. What’s not to like. They are so fresh and cheery. With the help of Trader Joes, they are in the house almost year-round!

  408. Bernice Wright

    Love, love, love Tulips – any color is great. Not particular. Love all flowers though, no matter what they are.
    Thanks for the chance to play – great candy!!!

  409. Wisteria…oh my so so pretty and it smells gorgeous too…

  410. As many others have said, it’s a toss-up between tulips and daffodils! I love the cheeriness of daffodils and there are so many options with tulips. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  411. I love all spring flowers, but star jasmine is the ‘star’. The fragrance is heavenly. I’m making the invitations for my daughter’s baby ‘sprinkle’ (small shower) and would love to have the Rain or Shine stamp set for them. Thanks for the chance to win it, Mary!

  412. What a fun contest! My favorite spring time flower is the tulip. I love when they start coming up but living somewhere that snows is upsetting because sometimes they start coming up and then it snows a ton on them. So sad…

  413. I would have to say the “Siebold Primrose” is my favorite springtime flower. Not only is this flower easy to grow throughout most of the country (including semi-arid areas like where you live), but it also has a few attributes similar to Stampin’ Up!, such as it’s name and shape. Stampin’ Up! has “Primrose Petals”, a delightful spring color from the 2012-2014 In Colors Collection and this beautiful flower is called “Siebold Primrose”. The “Siebold Primrose” is a starry-five petaled flower, just like the Stampin’ Up! 5-Petal Flower Punch (retired). I love how we can find our hobbies in nature!!

  414. Karen Sanders

    I love all flowers! I have tulips, daffodils, and lilacs that brighten my Spring. BUT, it is the little Grape Hyacinths that make me smile! Thank you for sharing your love of card making!

  415. Iris’s!!! LOVE the purple. It brings back such great memories growing up and I still remember the 1st time I picked Iris’s and brought them to my mom. I was so proud but little did I know at 4 or 5 years old, I wasn’t suppose to pick them so I was in a little hot water! Still a great memory AND, now, I let my kids pick whatever flowers they want to bring to me! It’s the little things.

  416. I love tulips!! Always a beautiful sign of spring! Thank you Mary….I love your work!

  417. This is my first spring in AZ. I love the red hibiscus. The ground in Ohio is still snow covered so I will have another Spring when I go home. Magnolias are my favorite there!

  418. Mary, How fun!My favorite spring flower is the crocus. When we see those pop up we know spring is really coming. I also love the flowers on the Bradford pear trees. Overnight they burst with stunning white flowers! Happy Spring!!

  419. My Spring flower has always been the tulip! That’s why I also LOVE the Blessed Easter stamp set in the OC this year!! LOVE IT! 🙂

  420. Thank you for a chance to win all that great stuff! I love my peonies!

  421. My favorite is the crocus….you know spring is really coming! In Wichita, KS the other display of beauty in the Spring is the Bradford Pear. Anytime now we will wake up to trees laden with stunning white flowers! Thanks Mary! Happy Spring!

  422. I guess I would say mine is the daffodil – when they start popping up everywhere I think just maybe spring is here! And we are really ready for spring here in NC!



  424. My favorite flower has ALWAYS been the Tulip! I just love the winsome shape of them. I have always wanted Tulips in a bouquet over Roses. My Hubby is so good to remember this!

  425. The azalea bushes are blooming outside the parking lot at work – the colorful bushes are so full of flowers and are so beautiful – I think this is my favorite!

  426. Tulips are very pretty but I like the daffodil. 🙂 It just looks so happy!

  427. I look at your site every morning … Always inspires me. My favorite are our Texas bluebonnets — blooming now in central Texas.

  428. Danielle Dietz

    My all-time favorite are pansies! Especially the purple with yellow centers paired with the yellow with purple centers. Here in Texas summers are too hot so they definitely shine in the springtime! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win such lovely SU products. Your blog is always inspiring.

  429. Marilyn Wilson

    My favorite spring flower is the Daffodil. I call them HAPPY flowers because their bright yellow color makes me smile with happiness. It’s a sure sign that spring is on its way. We still have a long wait here in midcoast Maine!

  430. We have a Tulip Tree in full bloom right now (Northern California) and it is so beautiful. Since Tulips are my favorite Spring flower, I am really enjoying the Tulip Tree.

  431. OMGosh, I have so many, so I’ll pick my Irises; and I really have to say tulips too, pink and white. lol

  432. I have so many but I’ll go with Irises; oh my I have to add my pink and white tulips too, is that okay?

  433. I love pansies. They remind me my grandmother and growing up in Pennsylvania.

  434. Nancy L. Weller

    It is a sure sign of spring when the Blue Bonnets pop up on the roadside and hills of Texas. We know that spring has sprung in the towns and cities when the Blue Bonnets pop their heads up and show their glorious color!!

  435. Roxanne Stried

    We have lilac bushes growing on 2 sides of our house. Open the windows in the spring and you have that little bit of heaven! One side is purple, the other pink. My 2 favorite colors. The fragrant smell is the best!

  436. Mary, my favorite is the pansy. They always look like they are smiling.

  437. Pansies are my fav spring flower. It’s not the traditional tulips, daffodils, etc. but I love planting them every April 1st (the day, long ago when my youngest left home for her career in NYC). They made me smile that first time, and every April 1 since!

  438. Colleen Glover

    Tulips are my favs….little bundles of beauty and brigtness in the Spring!!

  439. Has to be he daffodils. They are such a happy flower.

  440. The Jonquil is my favorite flower. However after this gruesome Indiana winter, I will just be happy to see any color!

  441. Hi Mary, Love Tulips but Lilacs and Lilly of the Valley are my favorites. The only problem is, they’re here for such a short time! Enjoy your “Tulip” blog every day!

  442. Grape Hyacinth – a powerful pungent punch in a petite package. Among the first to pop up, all it takes is a wee bit of sunshine and warmth. They exemplify hope and better days ahead.

  443. Mary, thank you for your offer to stampers and a lovely way to announce it is Spring! The bearded iris remind me of my childhood and my mother. She had white bearded iris in flower beds on both sides of the backdoor steps. She would let us pick them and put them in a glass of colored water (water colored with food coloring). We would watch in wonder as the white petals turned into the color of the colored water. We could make any color of iris we wanted, and some of our colored iris were pretty unusual! We knew Spring was here when the iris bloomed. Happy Spring to you!

  444. Spring = bright colors = fun = giveaways 🙂 Thanks.

  445. absolute favorite is a Magnolia. The flowering trees in Fayetteville Georgia are fabulous. It’s like driving on a white carpet in heaven!

  446. I’m with you – citrus trees are the BEST. We spend every winter in AZ and there are two orange trees on the property. I keep the doors and windows open just to smell them!

  447. michelle murray

    Wild daffodil!

  448. Debbie Flattum

    My favorite spring flower is hyacinths! They are so fragrant. Thanks for a chance to win your great blog candy bundle.

  449. Cynthia Tuttle

    My favorite flower is the Lilac!! It’s not exactly a flower, but a flowering shrub, so I hope that it still counts!! Our backyard has lilac bushes on two sides, so when they bloom in the spring the breeze blows the lovely scent all over the neighborhood. It is a total shame that they don’t bloom for very long.

  450. I love all kinds of flowers so it’s hard to pick. But being from WI I love to see tulips and daffodils blooming because that means it truly is Spring! Thank you for the chance to win some awesome product!

  451. Debbie Wicklund

    I love Pansies. They are the first flowers of spring & can even take the cold mornings of Minnesota.

  452. My favorite spring flowers are the orange blossoms, love the scent.
    Maria V.

  453. My favorite spring time flower is the crocus. It gives me hope that spring is really coming and especially this year with all the snow and cold I can’t wait to see one boom!

  454. I love lilacs and their beautiful scent.

  455. Linda Crossman

    Tulips. Love ’em!

  456. Cherry Blossoms, you cant beat the beautiful color and fullness of the flowers. I love that SU! has several shades of pink I can use to make them!

  457. Well, it has to be lilacs for me! Finally some pretty nice days here in MN, but when the lilacs bloom along the roads – bushes 20 feet high sometimes, I am in heaven!

  458. It’s hard to pick one favorite! But daffodils can lift my spirit with their tenacity to even come up through snow..spring is coming!

  459. Sue Straatmann

  465. Red tulips and Yellow daffodils! Thats what I have in my garden and they greet me with cheer. Reading about all the flowers makes us in the Northeast so excited for Spring to come!!! Thanks for the contest and the cheerful prize you are offering.

  466. I love Snapdragons. It just seems like their little heads are wanting to have a conversation with me. So I sit on my patio and talk to them and they lovingly stand at attention. I remember as a little girl gently pinching the back of the flower head to make the mouth open and shut – just like they were talking. They come in so many beautiful colors and here in Surprise, Arizona, they are planted everywhere right now. Thanks Mary. Love your website!

  467. My absolute favorite spring bloom is fragrant daphne. The blossoms are so sweet in pale pink to deep magenta with the tangy smell of ginger and citrus. I planted one outside under my bedroom window and love that smell when I first wake up!

  468. Daffodils our my favorite springtime flower. So beautiful on the hill,swaying in the breeze.

  469. The beautiful Peonies. In Alaska they bloom all summer. I had several varieties. And now that I’m in Kentucky, they only bloom a short while. They are my favorite.

  470. I love tulips. They are so happy looking and colorful!

  471. Dutch tulips. We even have a local Tulip Festival including the traditional youngsters dressed in Dutch outfits and sweeping the streets and a Tulip Queen.

  472. I love an Iris or a Tulip. But you cannot beat a sunflower I am just not sure but those might be a summer flower. I love spring just not ready for the Texas summer heat………….

  473. Dee Cunningham

    Hi Mary, my favorite springtime flower is the Pansey. They are very hardy and have such a variety of colors. A lot like the DSP we get from SU! Thanks for all you do for the team…you are amazing.

  474. Stephanie Lopez

    My favorite springtime flowers would have to be daisies.

  475. Daffodils are probably my favorite, because t1hey are so cheerful and bright, and they are smong the first to appear in my area.

  476. Daria Stevenson

    I live in Texas and the Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brush signal spring alongside our highways and fields. Thank you for this fun opportunity.

  477. I Love big beautiful peonies. My husband grows pink, dark magenta and white flowers.

  478. My favorite spring flowers are the California redbuds. They’re spectacular. Thanks for the chance to win.

  479. Madeleine Menke

    Love tulips. I am not a “tidy” person. Not everything has a place in my house & even those things that do may not find their way home. I think that’s why I like tulips so much, they are a very neat & tidy flower. LOL There must be some order in life.

  480. Daffodils would be my favorite. So bright and cheerful.

  481. My favorite flower is the hibiscus. No, they don’t normally grow in South Dakota, but my mother’s hairdresser went to Hawaii and brought her back some slips. My mother raised four beautiful plants in redwood planters on wheels and though she has been gone many years, whenever I see a hibiscus, I have wonderful memories of her.

  482. Daffodil’s………..love the bright yellow color.

  483. Dee Ann Hernandez

    Gerber Daisies are my absolute favorite flower!!! They are sooo colorful and vibrant, just like our ink colors :-)!

  484. My favorite flower is the miniature iris’s. They bloom early and stay around for a week or so and then leave their foilage so you can enjoy the beautiful greenery.

  485. Great blog! My favorite spring flowers are Texas bluebonnets. So pretty!


  487. Definitely the pure and simple white flower of the citrus trees. You can smell their sweet scent before you even see the trees.

  488. My favorite spring flower is the Gerber Daisies, I love all the beautiful colors they come in.

  489. Oh I can’t wait for Spring. My favorite flower in Miniature Daffodils.

  490. AnnCaryl Worland

  492. It’s tulips for me, too, Mary. We always buy two to decorate our church sanctuary for Easter, take them home and give one to our neighbors who always host Easter dinner. The other we enjoy and eventually plant in the yard so that we have tulips the next year as well. Hope spring gets here soon!

  493. I love daffodils–they bring a smile to my face.

  497. Kittie Peterson

    My favorite flower is the crocus, however the beauty of spring is so awesome I love them all. It is wonderful when my Japanese Maple starts to show its spring.

  498. I’m partial to Lily of the Valley, but also Crocus which here in WI, we won’t see for a bit yet. Today is 51, but then we take a dive back down again.

  499. I. Really know that spring has arrived and summer is coming when the lilacs bloom. Such a great fragrance.

    But all trees in bloom are beautiful.


  500. Tulips are my favorite.

  504. My favor spring flower is Cherry Blossom. I have been able to go to the Cherry Blossom Festival a couple of times in Macon GA and all those trees in bloom are just breath taking. Some of the most beautiful picture I have ever taken are from there.

  505. Cindy Standal

    Mary, My new favorite flower is the daffodil – One of my co-workers brought a bunch for each of us into the office because he wanted to bring spring inside! Minnesota has had a long cold winter so the bright yellow daffodils all over the office were a great day brighter and they lasted all week! So wonderful!Have a wonderful daffodil day!

  506. Peonies! They were in my wedding bouquet and make me happy every time I see them :-).

  507. Mary Ann Whitten

    Redbud trees are blooming right now and they are beautiful!
    Keep sharing! Love your cards!

  508. tammy bratton

    My favorite springtime flower would have to be daffodils – – seems like they are one of the first ones to start blooming in the spring which just makes me happy!

  509. When we moved into our place over 20 years ago, we were so surprised the next spring when lots and lots of tulips bloomed in so many beautiful colors, shapes and varieties. Got to love them tulips!!

  510. I grew up in northern Ohio, so the smell of tulips and Lilacs are forever my favorite spring flowers. Now I live in South-Central Texas…no tulips or lilacs here. The Mountain Laurel are lovely; short in bloom time, but when they are in bloom the smell is like grape Kool-Aid. It is wonderful!

  511. Love tulips!

  512. Has to be those adorable cut crocus. Their little heads and trying to poke through about 3 ft of snow here in CT

  513. Love lilacs! The smell is just heavenly.

  514. Kristin Mullen

  521. I would have to say the daffodil.

  522. Tarina Holloway

  529. Pussy Willows, They remind me that spring is almost here.

  536. Hyacinth, it must be that flower, smelling it reminds me of spring and Easter!

  537. Lilacs! Their scent is so refreshing and definitely makes it feel like spring!

  538. Barb Davidson

    Lilacs are the best. I have two big bushes of them and as long as we don’t have some warm days and then a frost they will bloom. The smell is heavenly. Can’t come soon enough though. I am getting real tired of winter.

  539. I love them all! Especially the tulips, daffodils, crocus, and lilacs!!! I can’t wait to see them all!!!!

    I love daffodils! When we lived at our first house the squirrels wound dig up the bulbs and bury them all over the yard so it would be interesting every spring where we would have flowers coming up!

  560. We have wildflowers all over our property in the spring but my favorite is the star Lily…they are white and look so fresh after all the snow. Thanks for the great giveaway and for all your wonderful ideas everyday.

  561. Lilacs are far and away my favorite! I love to smell the scent in the breeze!

  562. I love seeing daffodils pop up and call for spring to hurry up n get here!

  563. As the children’s poem goes:

    Daffy-down-dilly has come to town
    In a yellow petticoat and a green gown.

    My favorite spring flower is the daffodil!

  564. I love lilacs. They smell wonderful! I love your blog:)

  565. Wow! It is just as difficult to pick a favorite spring flower as it is to pick a favorite SU stamp set or color! So I’m picking two – the lilac for its wonderful smell and the peony for its beautiful flowers.

  566. The cherry blossom

  567. I love them all. Everybody needs the beauty of flowers in their life! I would have to say iris. My grandfather called them “flags”.

  568. I am a true lover of TULIPS just like you Mary!! I lived in Wisconsin for over 40 years and it was the first bloom I would see in my garden letting me know sunny days are here. The color range of the tulip just amazes me. Bright colors and so happy and seems to burst with energy while the soft colors seem to sooth soul. The scent is soft and subtle. I just wish they bloomed a bit longer!

  569. I love crocus because they show their pretty colors first. A close 2nd are iris. Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy!

  570. Ah…springtime flowers! Don’t you just love our Creative God? Daisies are so simple and precious. Cherry blossoms are incredible. Daffodils just shout “spring!” Tulips are so festive and colorful. I love spring! And it starts the day before my birthday!

  571. Cherry Blossoms. I hope to one day travel to DC and watch them bloom!

  572. Daisies are my favorite spring flower!

  573. My favorite flower is daffodils. The bright yellow makes me happy.

  574. Linda Schilling

    Favorite spring flower is the tulip – they come in so many colors!!

  575. I love the little yellow daffodils along with tulips of all colors.

  576. She isn’t a “single” flower,she has lots of company and smells wonderful most of the year, her name is Lavender and is very popular here in Washington, she even has her own festival in Sequim.The yellow daffodil does brighten up anyone’s day with her cheerful color. My favorite flowers are carnations, so far though I’ve only seen many beautiful little crocus and a small tiny daisy. I would say is difficult to choose just one.

  577. My favorite Spring time flower is Lavender. The flowers are my favorite color; purple. As a bomus. . . it smells F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S

  578. I love spring and all it’s glorious flowers! But there is nothing like the fragrance of lilacs to remind you of spring. Spring cannot come soon enough around here! Great blog candy!

  579. Love tulips in rich shades of deep pink and purple

  580. Wendy T in Indiana

    Crocuses, because they give me hope for the end of winter, but I have tons of daffodil bulbs just waiting to spring forth!

  581. My favorite spring flower is buttercups….they make me smile

  582. My favorite is daffodils

  583. Mary,
    My favorite spring tome flower is the Tulip…mainly because
    the Tulip represents the begining of spring!! And this year,
    being from the midwest (chicago) I am so looking forward
    to the red and yellow tulips to show thier faces!!

  584. Great question, Mary. The comments have confirmed that we are anxious for Spring! My favorite Spring flowers are lilacs…so difficult to choose just one though. Can’t wait to see some color peeking through the ground soon!

  585. Purple Hyacinth are my favorite. The frangrance is wonderful.

  586. Tulips are my favorite, so pretty and colorful. Thanks for the chance to win. I look forward to your daily posts of inspiration.

  587. It’s a toss up between the sweet smells of lilacs & lilies! Both are just gorgeous, and after a VERY long East coast winter, I am ready to see (and smell!) them both!

  588. I always know spring has sprung when I see the daffodils blooming. But tulips are a close second. Happy Spring! And thanks for all the inspiration you provide via your blog.

  589. Tulips are my favorite!

  590. Favorite has to be Gerbera daisies. See them every now and then, but it seems as though Spring is the best time of the year to see them in beautiful vivid spring colors.

  591. Patricia wardlow

    The lilacs that bloom in Minnesota in may


  593. My favorite spring time flower is the tulip. Thank you for a chance to win the awesome blog candy!

  594. I love Lillies of the Valley and Lilacs – both smell heavenly!

  595. Since I live on our family’s apple orchard, I would have to say apple blossoms – about Mother’s Day weekend. Nothing like a picnic in the orchard when the trees are in full bloom.

  596. Lilacs are my favorite spring flower.

  597. I used to have a garden full of various varieties of tulips, many unusual colors, like green, black, and peppermint striped ruffles. Such fun to see them pop out in Spring. That’s why I love Stampin’Up, the variety of colors and shapes!

  598. Carri Anderson

    I love Tulips. So many color to puck from.

  599. Pansies–they have such sweet faces!

  600. I love all of the spring flowers, but tulips are a sure sign that spring is here to stay. Wonderful thought after a very cold, snowy Michigan winter!

  601. I’m right there with you, Mary, about the tulips……not sure if it’s my Dutch heritage or what? I just love ’em, any color, too!
    Thanks for sharing your goodies with a lucky winner. Hope to see you at convention–!

  602. My favorite flower is daffodils (or buttercups as we call them in NC)! Pretty and yellow, a sure sign of Spring!

    My favorite Spring flowers are tulips. They are so colorful and give us hope that warmer weather is almost here.

  604. Daffodils, for sure…thanks for the chance to win!

  605. I absolutely LOVE the redbud trees because they are one of the first to bloom here in Texas. Even though the name says redbud, they are a beautiful pink color all over the tree before any leaves come out. LOVE IT.
    thanks for a chance to win the blog candy.

  606. Candy Gardner

    I have tulips that come up every year and I love them, but my favorite is the TN Iris. It’s a gorgeous purple and when massed they are a show stopper!

  607. Melanie Coverston

    Any spring flower is beautiful! I love them all! Especially after this winter!!!
    Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy!

  608. I can’t wait to see my daffodils blooming. I love their sunny, cheerful blooms!

  609. Snowdrops! When I see them pop out and bloom I know Spring is not far behind. Thanks for sharing your “candy” 😀

  610. Definitely lilacs! I love it when I open a door or window and and the breeze blows the scent of the lilacs into our house. They are also beautiful especially with all the different colors they come in now.

  611. Margaret Spencer

    Daffodils are just so cheerful, and they come along even before Spring has officially arrived. We have daffodil festivals in my neck of the woods, Tidewater, Virginia. I was lucky enough to see the last of the English Lake Country daffodils (Wordsworth’s home) a few years ago – that was indeed special for me. I have loads of daffodil stories!! But I also delight in your cards – your emails are some of the first I read each morning. And what a generous give away. Happy, happy, hippity hoppity Spring!

  612. I love spring…daffodils, tulips, anything blooming! Today we saw the first stubs of green poking thru–yeah!
    Thanks for the chance at the candy!

  613. Hyacinths! So pretty and so fragrant….can’t go wrong. Sure wish they lasted a bit longer though.
    Thanks for all your inspiration Mary!

  614. I love the iris. When I was little my Grandmother and I planted them in all the flower beds at my house. They always remind me of her.

  615. I am loving those pink roadside flowers called ‘feather dusters!’

  616. Christina Slaton

    I love spring! Everything is new and fresh. My favorite springtime flower is the iris. It was a favorite of my grandmother and she had them all over the yard. Whenever I smell them I always think of her.

  617. I love lilacs!

  618. I love blue bonnets . We lived in Texas a few years and they were beautiful.

  619. My favorite flower is lilacs. I must say I love all flowers as they are all beautiful works of art. Thank you for the chance to win blog candy.

  620. Rose Toellner

    I love cheery yellow daffodils! My spring favorite followed closely by tulips.

  621. My favorite are irises. I love the beautiful colors.

  622. It’s so hard to pick just one as the spring flowers are such a welcome sight after a long winter. I would have to say Lilly of the Valley as they remind me of my mom. Thanks for offering such a great blog candy package as well as the great ideas you share every day!

  623. I love crocus. They are some the first to poke their happy little heads out of the cold soil here in Idaho and give us color after a cold winter. Yay, Spring!!

  624. I love the Easter lily, it reminds me of what Christ suffered for our sins.

  625. I can not pick just one. but a Lilac Bush and a bed of Lilly of the Valley really smells wonderful. So many childhood memories connect to their Aroma. Makes you want to say Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  626. Hands down a vase of brightly colored floppy tulips. Its not spring until i have some yellow tulips!

  627. My favorite springtime flower is the primula (primrose), but I also think that pansies are darn cute.

  628. My all time favorite is the Hybiscus!!! they are so beautiful and come in so many colors. Thank you for the chance of winning!!!!!

  629. Bonnie Foxwell

    Tough decision, but I think I would go with lilacs. We have one very nice bush in our yard, but our neighbor’s driveway is lined with them. I can smell their sweet fragrance every time I’m outside…Love it!

  630. Hi Mary,
    My favorite spring flower is probably the old-fashioned bleeding heart. The flowers and leaves are so delicate! I look forward to its appearance every Spring! Thanks for everything you do.

  631. Daisy – beautiful and innocent. And what lovely and happy cards they make!

  632. I love spring daffodils. Thanks for the chance to win.

  633. Veronica Meyer

    I love Dutch iris. They are so delicate and beautiful. Hope you have flowers to enjoy for the spring that will come.

  634. My favorite has to be TULIPS. Everything about them reminds me of Spring, from the wonderful colors to Easter celebrations. They are so beautiful! If only they didn’t get overheated in the California weather!

  635. There is no flower as lovely as the tulip – when it pops up out of the earth it announces spring is in the air. Thanks for the lovely blog candy; hope I am lucky and win it as I don’t own any of these items.

  636. Has ToTulips

  637. My favorite flower would be purple tulips. But I love any flowers that I receive. I am especially fond of paper flowers now. I had a bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law last weekend & needed navy & orange flowers to go nder the drink containers & woola I had Tangerine Tango & Not Quite Navy paper left over from the wedding invitations that we made & I used my Floral Framelits & mamde 6 paper flowers. They worked out beautifully. Nolw I plan to use them on the next shower gift as well.

  638. Sweetpeas are my most favorite flower. The sad thing is that they are hard to find. When we lived in Japan, I could purchase them at the produce stands but only for a couple of months. I love them because they come in so many beautiful colors (bright colors and pastels), and they are very fragrant. The only place I have found them here in the US is at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA. They have a maze made of sweetpeas.

  639. Tulips are my favorite Spring flower, and hydrangea are my all-time favorite!!

  640. My favorite spring time flower is the Jasmine that grows on the walls of our backyard! It fills the backyard with such an amazing fragrance!!!

  641. My favorite flower is Freesias, they smell wonderful and brighten up your days with sunshine! When they are blooming, its like a little spot of Heaven! They are so refreshing, even on a bad day… they raise the spirit. Thank God for these little flowers!

  642. My favorite flower is the Purple Lilac because they smell so good and they remind me of my grandma. My grandmother had a lilac bush next to her front door and every time I smell purple lilacs it reminds of my grandma who is no longer with us. I miss her. My second choice is Lilies because of their fragrant long lasting smell & their beauty.

  643. Lily of the Valley, I had these in my Wedding Bouquet.
    everytime I smell these it brings me right back to my Wedding Day!

  644. Lily of the valley. However I tried to get them to to grow on Oklahoma City without any luck.

  645. Irises are my favorite!

    Thanks Mary!

  646. Kathy Morrison

    Thanks for all the inspiration, Mary! Lilacs for me!

  647. Diane Seidler

    my favorite flower for spring is carried down from my mom. The daffodil. Every spring I look forward to seeing them come up to remind me that my mom is always with me. Love your inspiration Mary and very envious of your new room. Thanks for all you do.

  648. I love tulips…Any color! Looking forward to spring in the Northeast! Thank you for the opportunity!

  649. I have loved daffodils since I was a little girl! There were a lot of them at my Grandparent’s home, and they were all along the fence line at my Mother’s home. What a beautiful sight when they were in bloom!

  650. Sandra Meyers

    I love all flowers, so it is hard to choose one, but if forced, I would have to say Lilacs. I love them except, like so many, their blooming cycle is so short. I like flowers that bloom as much do the year as possible, which is why I have close to 50 rose bushes and then add a few flats of Zinneas to cover the dirt.

  651. Orange blossoms signal spring for me … with acres and acres of groves surround the house, the air is sweet and the flowers so white against the dark green leaves. Just lovely!

  652. My favorite spring flower is whoever pops his/her sweet head through the ground first. I don’t even have to see his/her whole flower to signal it’s time for everyone to wake up their sleepy heads and greet the world:)

  653. I’ve always loved the first signs of spring seeing the ‘Easter flowers ‘ or daffodils. But I also have a love for star gazers

  654. Mine is the daffodil! its always the 1st flower to appear around hear and it always blows my mind to have snow and ice in march and there is that bright yellow flower blooming its fool head off and be surrounded be all the snow and ice!

  655. I love Jasmine and Tulips! Thank you for the chance to win.

  656. Janet Gallion

    Daffodils without a doubt. They seem to trumpet, SPRING IS HERE! Oh how I wish after this long winter it would be. Thanks for your wonderful web site and sharing your incredible stamping room.I’m jealous:) Janet

  657. Johnnie Sexton

    I love daffodils, it just makes you know Spring is on the way and I am truly looking forward to warmer weather and who can stay gloomy when you see a full bed of daffodils. Johnnie

  658. I’m another tulips person.. Thank you for the chance to win some lovely goodies!

  659. I am partial to crab apple blossoms. I love watching at the end of their “life” when the winds blow and they come down like confetti!

  660. Lilacs and red tulips are my favorite springtime flowers.

  661. my favorite spring time flower is the TULIP!!! thanks for offering the blog candy!

  664. Love my tulips and I am so ready fro spring. Also, love you ideas and thank

    So delicate and fragent .

  667. Phyllis Freese

    I love tulips — both in the flower bed and stamped on a spring card.

  668. Mary, I just love watching your reveal of the new and wonderful craft room. Thanks so much for sharing. My favorite springtime flower is the daffodil. Since we have had so much snow it will be interesting to see how the flowers made it through the winter. Hopefully we will see them soon. sigh….
    Thanks again for all of the wonderful ideas every day and for a chance to win some blog candy. Cyn

  669. I do miss the tulip fields of Washington state, but I still love Arizona! Tulip stamps would be a way to bring home to home 🙂

  670. I guess this really isnt a flower but when my Cherry Tree blooms OMG nothing smells so sweet . It fills the front of the house with such an awesome smell. Thank you for a chance to win.

  671. I love any thing purple but lilacs are the best smelling spring scent. Thank you for offering a lovely gift.

  672. My favorite is the crocus, purple and yellow, because it is blooming now! Thanks for sharing the blog candy and thanks for your posts each day.

  676. Hoping all the flowers have survived the winter! Probably the favorite is daffodil as it seems to be the first to pop up with color in the spring. Thanks for chance to win.

  677. Stacey Carter

    Tulips of course. In the Midwest that means spring is here to stay.

  681. Roberta Barfield

    My favorite flower is the hydranga. Love them, last year I planted red, white and blue ones, they are gorgeous.

  682. I love tulips. All of the colors are such a nice change from the white snow in Winter.

  683. I love the first peeking looks of the crocus…then you know spring is coming for sure.

  684. Crocus and Snowdrops for me. Love the simplicity and vibrant colors 🙂

  685. I like the Easter Lily. It has beautifully shaped petals and the purity of rebirth, when you gaze inside. When you see them on the altar in church they remind you that Spring has arrived.

  686. It’s difficult to pick just one favorite , but mine has to be hyacinths. How can you not be happy and hopeful when you catch their lovely fragrance on the breeze?

  687. Mary,
    My favorite spring flower is also the tulip. I enjoy the different colors of tulips, too. I wish they lasted a bit longer, though.
    I love your site and good luck finishing your craft room.

  688. What a lovely give away! Just right for making spring themed cards!

  689. I love daisies! Real daises and paper daisies!!

  690. Amazing products your giving away. My favorite flower is echinacea. I have a garden full of them because not only do I love the beauty of them, but the bees love them and they bloom all summer long.. and I am ready for summer..

  691. Connie S in California

    Do we get to enter more than once, Mary? Although I love all the spring flowers, my favorite is still star jasmine. The scent is magical. Stargazer lilies are wonderful, too. Would love to have the stamp set as I’m in charge of invitations for my daughter’s baby shower (‘sprinkle’ is more like it in California this year!) and the umbrella would be a cute central stamp. Good luck to all who have entered!

  692. My favorite flower is the Lilac! It has the most beautiful smell & it’s my favorite color! Thanks Mary!!

  693. I love the colorful tulips that show a sign of Spring. The daffodils are also a favorite. Thanks for the chance to win so many nice Stampin’ Up products and for your daily inspirations with your great cards.

  696. Patricia Swagler

    My favorite spring time flowers are tulips and lilacs. I have both in my yard and I love the smell of my lilacs when they bloom. Thank you for the chance to win some blog candy.

  697. So many, but daisies always make me smile and they are such a cute crafting flower. Happy Spring!

  698. Bonnie C. Chandler

    Living in the Northwest, any bulb peeking from our garden beds is a favorite of mine long before we treasure the beauty of their flowers. Seeing the green sprouts popping from the ground is a joyful moment that spring and summer is beginning !!! I am not a native of the northwest, I am a California girl, so the joy of sunshine and the sound of sprinklers warms my heart.

    Bonnie C. from Port Orchard, Washington
    But, my heart is from the San Francisco bay area.

  699. Think I would have to go with the tulip. Although Daisy’s are my all time favorite flower. Thanks for the chance to win the wonderful goodies.

  700. Tulips have always been my favorite flower. Love your blog!

  701. I love lilacs!

  702. March has always been my Daffodil month – a favorite flower and in many areas a sign that the Cancer Society has been busy and adding to their donations for local patient services. Of course living where I do in Southern Oregon my favorite “flower” is the flowering out of the Pear trees as Spring gets ready to to be sprung. Not sure if tree’s count though as flowers and I am enjoying my Daff’s in bloom in the front yard.
    Thanks dear Mary for sharing the goodies and directing our thoughts to the wonderful sights and fragrances of Spring.

  703. Karilyn Moeller

    My favorite spring flower are what I call paperwhites. I love stepping our my back door and smelling their fragrance.

  704. Thanks for the chance to win candy! Crocus are a favorite spring flower

  705. You are always so generous in your give aways. My favorite flower is Jonquil. I put 2 or 3 in a cobalt blue water bottle and they just scream SPRING!

  706. Dutch iris!! Thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

  707. Tulips! Love your page! Thanks for so much inspiration!

  708. Kimberly Means

    I am with you Mary! My favorite spring time flowers are tulips. I live in Phoenix, AZ now, but when I lived in Utah, seeing the tulips bloom in the spring gave me hope that the cold winter was subsiding, and summer was just around the corner! I love your work, and follow your blog pretty religiously!

  709. Terry Andrusko

    My favorite late spring flower is the peony. I love the beautiful fragrance and the way they open with all of their petals. This winter has been incredibly cold and snowy here in Minnesota. I’m looking forward to the “green” of Spring. Have a terrific weekend.

  710. I absolutely love tulips. I love them popping up first thing in spring. Just makes me feel refreshed after a long winter!!

  711. Beverly Spaarks

    My favorite is the Hibiscus. In Texas we grow them big and beautiful. lol

  712. Love those lilacs – their perfume just fills the air with such wonderful fragrance. Thanks for your blog – it too is filled with wonder.

  713. Bluebells — Having grown up on two acres with over 40 old trees in the yard, I love bluebells.

  714. Denise Heredia

    I like Gerber daisies and lilacs too! Thank you for the chance to win!!

  715. I’m always happy to see our crocus blooming….we have them scattered in the yard and over the years they have multiplied, so now there are beautiful little bouquets all over.

  716. Susan Saunders

    My all-time favorite flower is the rose — I love the challenge of growing them. But my all time spring flower has got to be the crocus. I live in Florida now . . . but when I lived in the north the crocus would pop up to remind me that spring really was coming.

  717. Thanks for the great chance at blog candy Mary! My favorite springtime flower is lilacs! Just love them. Have many different varieties in our yard in many colors.

  718. Daffodils are my favorite spring flowers!

  719. I love to see the precious faces on my pansies in the spring. The ones that have gone “wild” are small and delicate. They make me smile. I enjoy seeing the amazing cards that you post on a daily basis. I don’t know how you do it but I love it.

  720. Wendy Goodchild

    I love the smell of lilacs!

  721. My favorite spring flower is any that is in bloom, so it changes as the spring progresses. Right now it is daffodils. Don’t they just scream sunshine! Tulips are simply a riot of color. Lilacs smell so wonderful. It is all good. Thanks for all your inspiration and the opportunity for blog candy.

  722. I especially love hydrangeas (not sure I spelled that right, but I’m sure you get the drift)!

  723. My favorite flower is the Tulip, we have that in common. I have always loved them.

  724. Tulips are my favorite – considering the numerous colors and varieties! However, living in the North – ANY flower by the time Spring rolls around is EXTREMELY appreciated and LOVED! I have never been to Arizona and am unfamiliar with citrus tress. However they sound lovely. Will have to put a visit into my “bucket list”. Thank you for this chance to win! Happy Spring!

  725. MaryAnn Horbinski

    Mary: Thanks for the opportunity to win some “candy”. I have two favorites, the first is the daffodils. My late husband and I planted hundreds of daffodil bulbs in our woods when we moved in 19 years ago. We transplanted them from the side & front yard. They really brighten up the backyard and woods when they bloom. All we see is YELLOW dancing flowers from our family room. The second is the Lilly of the Valley. My mother’s favorite also. She is in a nursing home with dementia and as soon as the flowers bloom, I pick a bunch and take to her. When we walk in with the flowers, she gets a big smile on her face and I let her smell the bunch before I place them in the vase. I am anxious for the snow to melt and the sun to warm the soil so the plants can poke through the ground and brighten up the yard.

  726. Lynn Flanagan

    My favorite Spring flower is the old fashioned butter and eggs. It has two shades of yellow. We transplanted some from my Mama’s house last year and they bloomed just this week. Good memories.

  727. Hello Mary … my favorite flowers are the tulips. Love, Love, Love Springtime. But actually, here in Missouri I would love to see any kind of flower that is not white — soooo tired of our snow this year — Bring on Spring please (they expecting some more snow tonight).

  728. Daffodils for sued.

  729. Tulips, I just love tulips!!

  730. I love daffodils, but will it ever get warm enough for them to push up through the ground? Iowa is having an extremely cold and snowy time of it right now.

  731. Daffodils, because they are the first to bloom here in Georgia and they are so bright cheery! They let us know spring is truly coming after this crazy winter we have had!

  732. I love tulips in their many colors. Can’t wait to see them here in MI!

  733. Angie L in Illinois

    Daffodils are definitely my favorite Spring flower. They mean that ol’ man winter has finally left the building! Haha! Thanks for the chance to win.

  734. Thanks for the blog candy, Mary. My favorite springtime flower is the daffodil! Daffodil delight, anyone?

  735. My favorite springtime flower is the crocus. They are such a welcome little spring flower after a long winter of no color.

  736. It’s hard to choose between Bleeding Hearts, so delicate, or lilacs with their great fragrance! Here in MN, spring has some time yet to get here, lots of snow piles around and still in the 20’s and 30’s!! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy!

  737. I love daffodils because they remind of of new birth, renewal and sunshine!

  738. Erika Swenson

    Hands down tulips! I love all the different colors!

  739. When I see forsythia blooming, I know spring has finally arrived in Ohio! I will be especially happy to see this explosion of yellow this year!

  740. I love the Iris. I have deep purple ones with a beautiful yellow center. I can’t wait until they bloom in late April in Utah.

  741. I have a very hard time selecting just one spring flower because they are all so colorful & beautiful!

  742. My favorite spring flower is the tulip! Last fall, I planted over 70 tulip bulbs on my hands and knees and I could barely walk for a week! I really hope I will win the blog candy but I also hope those tulips come up when the snow melts!

  743. Love tulips, they are so pretty and so many styles and colors.

    The simplicity of a Tulip with it’s vibrant color is a sure sign of Spring! I truly love the deep hues that just shout, “Look at Me”!

  745. All of the Dogwood trees and Forsythia is blooming, but I keep checking my garden for the large patch of Lily of the Valley. They pop up next to the Sweet William but we have had 2 late winter ice storms, I am hoping they weren’t destroyed by them.
    I love Lily of the Valley! My hubby stole a piece from my Lily of the Valley filled bouquet to wear on his lapel on our wedding day soon to be 20 years ago.
    The flowers look so delicate when in fact they feel quite firm. Each little bell is perfectly shaped no matter how small they are. They also have a gentle, sweet scent. I just love them!

  746. My favorite flower is tulips (like so many others). I even had my bridal bouquet in tulips, it was a bit challenging since they wilt so easily but it was gorgeous. But I agree with you, when I lived in AZ (phoenix) I just LOVED the orange blossoms. No one (yankee candle etc.) can quite capture that smell properly. True confession – my first year in AZ, I even brought in a beautiful bouquet of the orange blossoms…my DH about died – he informed me that those beautiful flowers were next year’s fruit….uggggg – I cut off all our fruit! Ha Ha! Who knew???? Thanks for your blog and the opportunity for your candy.

  747. Love all spring flowers , they let you know its a new beginning . The azaleas , daffodils, hyacinths, japanese magnolia, citrus trees, star glazer lily. Amarillas,
    Easter lily, pecan trees when they start to bud you know spring has arrived.

  748. Lilacs are by far my favorite spring time flower! We have 4 bushes beside our north window, so we really get to enjoy the sweet scent as they bloom! Thanks for the chance at some sweet spring time swag!
