for yourself?

No. Can't afford them. Haven't a garden to grow them in either.

I do sometimes when I feel like I deserve them !!- only from the supermarket though.

I often buy them for my mum and she does for me too.

I love flowers, especially spring flowers like daffs and tulips

For the house I do. We have flowers in the living area (2 vases), in DD's room (pink, obviously), our bedoom, and both bathrooms. I am really obsessive abiout ensuring all rooms have fresh flowers in at the moment - incase we get viewers round. But even before selling, I still bought flowers for the house as I like to have the around.

nope. i often buy them for my mum and she buys them for me, so although its not buying them for myself we have this little unspoken arrangement. i also leave the dead ones in the vase so dp knows when they are due to be renewed

No but should do. Have had lots of lovely flowers recently and think they're fab.

Before we were skint, I generally put some in the supermarket trolley about once a fortnight.

Haven't been doing so recently tho, cos committed to paying for this holiday.

DH went thru a stage of bringing them in if he did the shopping, but he's saving the money on them too

usually dh buys them, but I do ocasionally - always like to have some in a vase in the living room

Love fresh flowers - buy some every couple of weeks, usually from supermarket. I actually find the supermarket ones usually last longer than florist flowers.

Frequently. I love flowers, and it's the only way I ever get to have them in the house.

I am a flower addict, I think I keep our florist going single handed, I am the Elton John of Lancashire minus the dodgy hair transplant. I always have fresh bouquets in hallway, kitchen, dd bedroom and our bedroom. Also have silk flower display in upper hallway and front room.

Dd has inherited my addiction, loves the florist and will tidy her bedroom in a flash if I promise her some flowers!
