hands down, my favorite flower is a ranunculus. they remind me of garden roses, and the layers of petals are so fascinating. ranunculus come in a variety of colors... i prefer the rust colored ones. at trader joe's this weekend i just had to splurge and buy some.
ranunculus seem to be getting popular too. i had them in my wedding bouquet, and now real simple's 2010 wedding magazine has them on the cover.
