If you’re like me, you love flowers, having them around you or purchasing them, but when it comes to naming them- well that’s a whole other story. And now that spring is upon us, I’ve got a lot of lovely flowers budding up around me that haven’t bloomed and I am waiting in anticipation to see what they’ll look like. I know there’s a lot of you out there who can look at the leaves and say, oh that’s a blah blah blah, but the extent of my naming system is, “that yellow one” or “the pink spikey one.”
Sometimes I wonder if I’m looking at a weed or a flower, but I don’t care much as long as it’s pretty to look at. It’s really something I need to work on I admit, if I’m going to have my own garden. And then there’s Step 2: Keep the plant alive. Maybe I’ll have more success this year with outdoor plants, because indoor ones haven’t been my forte. So I’ll keep watching the tiny green leaves sprout up through the ground, one surprise at a time. I’ve already received some hints from a few early blossoms.
