Request for flowers


#1

Sometimes at the Catholic church I attend, the request for flowers from the parishioners’ flower gardens would be mentioned. Have you brought in flowers to be used on the altar? If Yes, what type?


#2

When we lived in Northern California, we would sometimes bring in Sweet Peas. Every Spring my Dad and Grandmother would plant them in our backyard.


#3

Yes, tons of different types of flowers:

Peonies, tulips, daffodils, roses, gladiolas,dahlias, zinnias, phlox, snowballs, bridal wreath, liatris, lilies, mums, and greenery from pine, fir, and spruce trees.

I bring in whatever I have growing in the season.


#5

Grandmother Mary brought in lavender purple lilacs.

My mother-in-law did the flowers at our church for a while. She planted dahlias and carnations to augment her rose garden. She also had rhododendrons and beautiful hydrangeas.
