Springtime is always a favorite. It’s the season of rebirth. I adore all the flowers of spring, but especially the ones that are easiest to care more. *wink* My great-grandmother always had the most beautiful yard flowers for spring. Tons and tons of daffodils. Read on to learn all about the must haves for spring!
5 Must Have Yard Flowers For Spring
There are so many different flowers to choose from, but below are my favorites!
But first… WHY do I call them ‘yard flowers’?
Great-Grandma’s Yard Flowers
From the time I was 11-years-old until I left for college, I lived next door to my great-grandmother. Well, I guess technically it was a tad bit further than right next door away… We lived in a rural area and he house was the next property over. Easier said, I could walk through a field to get to her house! My great-grandmother, Grace Isabel Voyles, was part of my life until I was 19. That’s not at all very common. Great-Grandma lived to be 89 and the morning she died was actually leaving for work at the local library. She had been the town police dispatcher and upon retirement became the librarian. It gave her something to do and look forward to everyday. She was strong willed and an amazing woman. And did she ever like plants! Large patches of my great-grandmother’s yard were actually just flowers. It’s how I will always remember her best.
Yard Flowers Perfect For Spring
For DIY planting, the following bulbs should have been in the ground already. BUT don’t despair if you are behind schedule. You can still find full grown spring flowers online or at your local nursery. Just bury the bulb in the ground to enjoy this year and for years to come.
