    no no not at all I always got for either Lilies, roses, spray carnations, and iris look nice or sometimes I get a single rose wrapped in a cage thing made of twigs (can get them from the Flower stand in the bon accord centre) when the top is clipped it fans out and looks amazing.

    Or what you do is try and get to he home before her leave it on the door step with a little note.

    Re: Buying flowers when and why ?

    Buying flowers is really special, there are white daisy days, scented orchids wild flower mixtures and little poseys. If you haven't ever bought some flowers think about the colour the shape the aroma (do they have hay fever) and the day. If its sunny and bright definaetly white daisies! Buy them, enjoy them, and grow some...

    I note you say nothing about what kind of rep! And given that flowers should really be red...

    Never buy flowers to say sorry - because every time the person who receives them looks at them they'll remember what you did wrong .

    ...And that way you'll never have to have suspicious questions about flowers you give, because you don't give them when you feel guilty .

    I'm with you on that one, always get described as a nice guy but I kind of hate it because all too often all the nice women seem to be with the barstewards of life , with the nice guys loosing out.

    I'll just continue to live in hope

    I love getting flowers! I thinkt hey make the house look cheerfull!

    If I'm going to visit someone for dinner or if someone has been kind enough to let me stay I will usually buy flowers - or a bottle of something!

    Clueless PMJD someone will come along and thing's will be perfect! the Good girls with the bad guys probably aren't really that good they just look it compared to their men. And the Real Good Girls are still out there their just harder to find!

    Re: Buying flowers when and why ?

    Flowers are lovely... I often have them in my kitchen... (by the sink!! ) to look at all day long to bring some of the outdoors into my kitchen... especially throught the winter months...

    I dont wait for anyone to buy them for me and if they do I am thrilled to bits.... (roses are my favourite)...

    To be honest though, I would much rather see them in my garden, have a nice long cool drink and be sat in the sun, chillin.... Have lots of lilies at the moment and they are glorious....
