Books with flowers in their titles . . .?

Do you know any? Either with the word "flower" in the title or the name of a specific flower. For some reason, snowy winters make me think of flowers :)

And I just wanted to say good morning to everyone ♥ I'm at my happiest in the early hours of the day, practically delirious at the moment. Hope your days go well!

BQ: If you've read "A Separate Peace" by John Knowles, what did you think of it?

    ***Note: Though it neither has a flower name in the title nor the word "flower," Death in the Garden by Elizabeth Ironside fits, don't you think? A garden can contain multiple flowers.

    Flowers for Algernon

    And I just finished reading "A Separate Peace" for English and I absolutley hated it. It was hard to follow, and Finny died for the stupidest reason in the world. A lot of the kids in my class thought Finny and Gene were gay.

    Good morning! :)

    The Name of the Rose-Umberto Eco

    BA: I read that book about 6 years ago and it has remained my favorite book ever since. It's such a short, simple book, but the substance in the plot is inspiring and so revealing. I practically have that book memorized, lol.

    How about White Oleander? Can't recall the author. As cold as it is here, winter always makes me think of flowers.
