Growing Beautiful Flowering Plants: Showcasing Some Hubbers who Have Written About Plants

Spring is Trying to Come...and These Lovely Azaleas are Heralding that Event

Source

One of my passions is flowering plants. I love puttering around in the soil and seeing the beautiful blossoms unfold after weeks or months.

Right here on HubPages I have at my fingertips so many articles about growing flowering plants.(There are of course many others just about everything you want to know about gardening.) It is so easy for me to find a new plant to select for my yard. It is also easy for me to discover what I might need to do to grow healthier plants, to care for them properly, or other questions I might have.

In this article, some of them have been shared with you.

Hibiscus...lovely every time they bloom

You can read about the foxglove plant and learn how to be cautious with it. Faith Reaper's article is at the following link:

Faith Reaper

Lurking in our yards and flower beds are beautifully dangerous flowers that can be harmful, toxic, to our pets and to our children.

Faith Reaper posted an important article about a beautiful but dangerous plant in our gardens. This article is one everyone should read in order to aware of the dangers that may be present in your yard. If in doubt, research.

Faith Reaper has also been a great support system. After watching me struggle with some horrible photos, she commented on how she noticed they had improved. I needed to hear that.

My salute to you, my Friend in Christ, Faith Reaper.

Hi AuFait O they really are glorious and I find them so year after year...perfectly formed and arrayed in their most beautiful color...

Thank you so much for visiting....Angels are headed your way....stay cool...I am going out at first light and working till about 9 and even that is too late to stay out as it is HOT already then; then I go out about 7 at night and work till nightfall ....it is SUMMER TODAY officially and I will enjoy each moment as I do love this state. Lived in the cold for years...been there....not my cup of tea. :D

Love that first photo especially! It's one of my favorite colors and those flowers are beautiful! This seems like a very summery article and all the beautiful blooms were so pretty to look at. Lots of good information too.

Hope all is well with you and your family and that you're able to stay cool. The humidity here is so high it adds another 7 or more degrees to the actual temp. Take care . .

Hi Rtalloni

Nice to see you this morning. My plants right now are so happy happy. We have had several days of rain and this morning it looks as if we will get even more. This is a treat because last year we had almost drought conditions. It was difficult to keep them watered enough.

I will be peeking in to visit your site again soon as I always find something of interest there.

Such lovely photos in this hub that highlights some great gardeners whom I've benefitted from as they've shared their info in hubs! This year we are have an actual spring rather than the cool one day then hot for the summer on the next day and I'm trying to take advantage of the flower photo ops. :)

Hi rajanjolly

Flowers are just a lovely part of each day for me. They keep me connected to my precious Mother who could 'make sticks grow.' Having a yard filled with lovely flowers makes me feel joyful every day.

I am glad you enjoyed viewing them.

You are so right about spring on the way. We have had such great weather here in Florida so I thought winter was officially over. But this weekend we have had a cold snap so I have to wait a bit longer to put the plants back out that have been on my porch since November.

I can't wait to plant new plants too. It is so much fun. And I have learned so much from the articles from you all here on HP...I love love the photographs too.

Sending you many angels Sheila :) ps

This is beautiful! I love flowers, so I will definitely check out the links on this article. It's nice that you put together this article about hubs that you have learned from, so that others can do the same.

The flowers are so pretty. If I had a yard, I would definitely take gardening up. Right not all I have is a few green plants, and a potted "Parade Rose" plant that are inside my apartment. I think plants really add something special, and flowers are a visual pleasure! I will share this Hub!

Gardening and enjoying other gardens is one of life's pleasures. Even wildflowers along the roadways and in fields help color our lives. Whether in deserts or high up in alpine meadows, flowers are a beautiful gift to refresh our souls. Nice accolade to some of our fellow hubbers! Up, useful, beautiful and sharing.

I wish this hub was longer. I love looking at flowers. As an herbalist, I am always looking for interesting plants to add to the garden. This year I am going to expand my garden back out and also have a space for the kids to have their own gardens.

Apparently I am about 5 months behind on your hubs! Oh no! Thank you so much for including my hub here. I had no idea. It is very kind of you to include hubbers and their articles here, but there has never been a doubt that you are a very kind person. Spring is almost here and I am ready! I believe this is a good time of year for a share for this hub, so voted up, useful and sharing! Have a beautiful day! :)

Hi Barbara Kay...and you are welcome. I am anxious to try some of the plants you have written about. Yes, it is a hibiscus that I have written about...it is the most prolific one I have ever owned. Almost every day I have a new blossom which is more beautiful than the one before.
