He bought me flowers twice in our ten years together.
Last time was 2008 for our anniversary. First time was like 2003 just because. He saw a guy selling them on the side of the road and had a whim to get me some.

He buys them when I say "I want flowers for this occasion" haha. He never gets them just because. But that's okay, I'm not huge on flowers anyways.

Not really. He bought them for me once for valentines day the first year we were together, maybe once since then as well. So not often really. I like flowers, I would think it would be really sweet if he would just show up with some one day.

Yeah, I don't have a "just because" kind of flower buyer either Last Mother's Day he picked me flowers from his moms garden, how thoughtful was that! I also think it would be really sweet if he would turn up with them one day out of the blue. I have hinted at that but still nada. Oh well! I have a pretty vase that will remain unused for a little while longer yet...

DH used to buy me flowers all the time, often just because. We don't really have the disposable cash like we used to before I became a SAHM, so I am fine with going without. I know we'll get there again one day
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!

I think he bought me some for my birthday once when he was out of the country... or maybe it was for our anniversary. But he hasn't done it in a while. The last "Flower" kinda of gift he gave me was a HUGE bouquet from Edible Arrangement.

Seriously it was funny, because I was actually talking to him over Skype when they arrived!

My favorite flowers, Lilies and Roses. And he knows I like them....

Scott has bought me flowers a couple of times, and other times he has hand picked them

It doesn't happen very often, but that's fine by me. I love it when he does though

Dh is always buying me flowers. He know how much I love them in the house. I cant stand red roses so that he has never once bought me thankfully. He changes the kinds and colors he buys me but has been pretty regular for all these years.

Now if we could have been here in time to plant my massive amounts of tulips I want all over our yard.

Every once in a while he does. It's not that he thinks they're a waste of money. He said if it make me happy, he'll spend the money. He just doesn't understand why anyone would buy something that will die within a week and why they're considered romantic. Typical engineer thinking.

No he doesn't anymore because I am the frugal one, and I am the one who thinks it is a waste of money because they die so fast. I would much rather he put that money towards something I can wear (like a cute top from Marshalls or something, lol) or take me out to dinner on a date night :-)
