Spring is one of my favorite times of the year – muddy paw prints and allergies not withstanding. We love flowers here and thank goodness, my dh has the greenest thumb this side of the Mississippi. that man loves his posies and he works very hard at not only keeping them alive but making them thrive. All I have to do is admire them, smile and tell him how pretty they are. Nice gig.
Here are some of our favorites:
lovely bleeding heart. an old sentimental favorite of mine
hydrangea – depending on the fertilizer used it can be a variety of colors
azalea – lovely blossoms and many colors
lilac – another sentimental favorite of mine and the fragrance — heaven!
my mom had lilys of the valley all around the house where we grew up. I always get a little misty with sentiment when they first come into bloom because they make me think ofher
wave petunias are a staple around here. they bloom beautifully all summer long
day lilies come in a variety of colors. we just love them.
There are so many, many more but these are some my personal favs. What about you? Are you a flower lover? Do you like to dig in the dirt or watch someone else do the digging? What’d your favorite flower and does it have any sentimental attachment to you?
