Daffodils are Blooming!
After a VERY long winter, it's finally spring! Did you get out and enjoy the beautiful spring weather this weekend?! You probably noticed beautiful daffodils flowers are blooming in all their yellow glory.
In the spring some plants,which have been “sleeping” during the winter, begin to grow. These plants, called “perennials”, start growing and pushing out of the soil in seemingly lifeless gardens. Early spring flowers will grow and bloom only during the brief spring season. Common spring flowers are tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocuses.
The colors of early spring flowers are very special to discover after a long cold season. Be a flower detective and take a closer look at the new growth of spring. As all flowers of every season, spring flowers come in many shapes and heights and shades of color. Notice that some flowers petals grow up and others grow down. Count the petals and observe their shape, size and color differences. Study the stem height and leaf shape and size. It is fun to carefully examine how each flower grows and blooms in a unique way.
