One spring morning, a flash of color appeared out of the corner of my eye. Looking closely at a section of the garden packed densely with naturally growing succulents and poppies, a small, delicate purple flower could be seen just under the taller surrounding plants. Lying almost hidden in the shadows, the little flower looked as if it was just waiting to find the nerve to peek its little head out into the sunshine among the larger plants. I felt a surge of excitement I never expected from working with something as simple and natural as flowers. Upon closer look, I saw what I was hoping to see since the fall - the beautifully colored, Easter egg shaped flower of a Crocus. I hurriedly called my wife out and together we welcomed the new little plant into our garden. As the next few days went by, more crocus flowers appeared - two or three every couple of days, it seemed. We had a wonderful little patch of spring color just outside our front door, and the little flowers just kept coming.
Next year, we plan to get some beautiful flower pots to showcase even more of our crocus plants near the entrance to our home. We also thought that a beautiful sundial in the garden surrounded by the little daffodils that were beginning to show themselves would be a fantastic addition to our yard. And how enchanting would the Franz Hall Irises be if they were surrounded by a collection of purple amethysts to better display their vibrant colors? Spring can be a wonderful time if you have some patience and creativity in the fall. Once you get planting, you'll be rewarded with some of the most beautiful Easter gifts that nature can create for you.
