Kitt gave me this idea in a different forum. Since I now can't go with the ball team to Nashville this weekend, the wife and I will have to find something else to do during her week of vacation. That got me to thinking of the Spring flowers in another forum here at healing well. Does anyone have plans for flower gardens or such this year? I have to redo my mother's wild flower gardens this year. She wants something different than the old timber borders, so I'll be installing some type of block this Spring.
I bought my wife a dozen roses for Valentines day and someone asked me why I was looking at the tighter closed roses and not the full bloom? Well of course I want them to last a while and look for some that are getting ready to full bloom. I had always wondered why someone would by full bloomed roses and complain they just don't last. The last 2 years we managed to keep her roses for over 5 weeks. Was told Saturday evening they are still blooming and lovely.

Besides that I have to add some tulips to mom's other flower gardens so I am gonna start looking for starter flowers and keep them inside for a little while yet since we still get cold and snow this time of year. So maybe we will do some flower garden planning while she is off and I am recovering

Bill,
 
Glad to see you posted this thread. 
Here is a video you all may find peaceful and joyful to watch.
 
 
If you do not have a green thumb like me there are nature's flowers growing in a medow.  Conservatories to stroll through and parks full of beautiful flowers.  Just tip toes through the tulips.
 
Don't forget those beautiful apple blossoms.
 
Gentle hugs,
 
Kitt

Try daffodels or jonaquils (sp?)
We also have tiger lilies and seven sisters roses in our yard.

I don't have much of a green thumb but perhaps a window box garden would do if for me and maybe you too.  

Window boxes help improve curb appeal. With a window box or window planter you can bring the front of your home to life. An outdoor window box allows you to bring color and pizzazz to any window! But a window box or window planter's box is much more versatile than the name suggests. You can use an outdoor window box and flower box to transform any dull or uninviting flat surface such as decks, fences, or bare walls.

This may be the way for me to go.

I love Petunias .

Watch your gardens grows cool cool cool

Hugs,

Kitt
