Daffodils Are Blooming!
After a long Michigan winter comes spring! 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.
