Alright, no judgement zone, right?

I seriously feel like such an annoying girlfriend to even ask this question but...

I really love flowers.

Now, I have ZERO issue buying myself flowers, and I always try to have fresh flowers somewhere in my house at all times (though this winter I have switched back into the world of succulents...)
But a part of me would really, really love my boyfriend to surprise me with flowers every once in a while.
He's just not the kind of guy to do that - he's romantic in other ways but the whole buying little gifts just because thing isn't for him.

And I don't hate him for it!

I just wish there was a normal way for me to drop the hint that I'd really love to be surprised like that every once in a while without sounding like a needy girlfriend?

So my multi-part question is:

1. Should I ask my boyfriend to buy me flowers?

If no, I get you - I'm fine buying them myself and should understand my boyfriend just isn't into that,
If yes, how should I tell him and why do you think I should?
He won't know how you feel unless you tell him.
Tell him your dad buys your mom flowers all the time for no reason. 馃槈
You could drop hints about what your favorite flower is, and when you're throwing away some old flowers make sure he sees it and make a comment about your vase being empty.
tell him yeah go i love surprises from friends and family too but ill never get one so just casually say "i love surprises with flowers" and pray just pray 馃槀馃槀馃槀
Yes I think it'd be ok for you to do that. Just position you and your boyfriend near some flowers, make it obvious that you enjoy the sight and smell of them, picking them up and smelling them while smiling with delight wouldn't hurt. Maybe say "I love the flowers this time of the year" and once again make sure he sees and hears you. Its okay to want a little gift from your loved one. I certainly understand you.
