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

Beautiful Intoxicating and Toxic

Purple cone flower

The purple cone flower has always been a flower I have wanted to grow. After reading this article, by The Dirt Farmer, these will be a project in my garden next spring. You can read all about how to grow your own at:

The Dirt Farmer

The Dirt Farmer has many articles about growing plants that I have enjoyed reading. I am always looking for new ideas for plants to buy but truthfully look for ones that I am sure I can manage.

His articles are filled with many you will find interesting to read about and grow.

5 Toxic Plants that are also Beautiful

rebeccamealey



Rebeccamealey has written and included photographs of a 'perfect perennial, the day lily' to use her words. The photographs alone will make you glad you read this article.

Rebeccamealey was one of the first to welcome me to HubPages. She would visit and comment on my articles as I began my journey here . Thank you, Rebeccamealey for stopping by.


Sgbrown...iris


This article that sgbrown wrote about growing iris will provide you with information you will want to know to grow this always exotic looking flower (to me it is). The history that is included makes it that much more interesting to read.

Growing plants can be daunting for some but sgbrown has a way of taking the fear out of growing things.You will not be disappointed when you read her articles.

Orchids

This article that Barbara Kay wrote will give you some background knowledge about orchids in case you are considering growing them.

http://barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Grow-and-Care-for-Orchids

Barbara Kay

Barbara Kay has written about growing and caring for orchids in a way that makes it sound like something I can tackle. They are so lovely but I have always been uncertain that I would be able to grow them well.

After reading this article, I will consider trying this new adventure. Thank you, Barbara Kay, for sharing what you know with us about these gorgeous plants.

Ten purple flowers to plant

Roskia's article gives you enough information about each plant so you can decide if it is one you want to add to the beauty of your yard.

http://rosika.hubpages.com/hub/Plant-Purple-Flowers-in-Garden

rosika

Rosika's article on the purple flowers to plant in your yard is one you will not want to miss.

The variety of shades of purple will make you want to include these lovelies in your flower beds. Thank you, Rosika, for sharing these with us.

These are just a few of a vast array of articles about flowering plants available here on HubPages. There are so many more that you will want to read as well.

I have written about flowering plants as well. If you go to my profile page, you will be able to click on them ther

      Good morning Peggy...this was a favorite to compose...but it seems my photos (some) are being tagged as too small. So I will need to come in and change them. Not so much is in bloom right now but we are enjoying poinsettias of all colors and sizes right now.

      Hoping all is good with you . Angels are once again coming to you and know how thankful we are for hour hugs and prayers, Peggy.

      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.

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!
