The sun is shining, vegetable gardens are full, and spring flowers are in full bloom! Flowers are beautiful, natural decorations that should be enjoyed all year long— But when it comes to the spring season, blooms are even more prevalent in many front yards, table tops, and kitchen counters. Bouquets of cut flowers as well as live flowering plants are easy to use as decoration and diverse enough to spruce up any space.
As we move through April and into May, it’s time to appreciate the beauty of spring gardening! The start of spring is on March 20— It’s a lovely time of year in which the Pacific Northwest is full of blooming flowers and growing plants. Many gardeners start ahead of time to get ready for spring gardening— That means planting seeds and starts, weeding, and otherwise preparing for plants to grow. While you can have fun gardening all year long, the majority of Pacific Northwest gardening tends to take place during the months of spring and summer.
A tradition for many couples, Valentine’s flowers are a fresh and beautiful way to show your love. Seasonal flowers and roses have a lovely aroma and remind you of the appreciation your loved one feels for you. It’s one of those gifts that shows thoughtfulness and marks special occasions— Or you can even give living plants as an alternative to fresh cut local flowers! In addition to plants and flowers, gifts like specialty food items, chocolate, and wine are enjoyable and can help you express your love for others.
