I love the old fashioned-type flowers that have been handed down through the generations.
The pink columbine flowers from my grandmother's home went to my mom's home, and then to mine. The purple iris in my yard came from my sister's home. A course my home came with it own flowers when I bought it several years ago. Daffodils, surprise lilies and snowball hydrangea come up every year.
The one old-fashioned flower that I really wanted but didn't inherit was the hollyhock. I had to start them from seed so it took the second summer to have big beautiful blooms.
The hollyhocks have reseeded themselves and now I have my own flowers to pass on.
