Spring has Sprung – my favorite EASY flowers

I love spring and fall. In an Alabama Spring the weather ranges from fierce devastating storms to calm warm, sunny days. The morning I took these pictures, it was 67 degrees, sunny and not a cloud in the sky (note: this is the March ).
The kids were still in their pajamas and just added socks, shoes and sweatshirts to go outside to play.
Our Apple tree shows that it still lives (we have a hard time with not killing plants ). I found out that when the tree instructions say to bury the ball of the tree, you really aren’t suppose to. What’s suppose to happen is you’re suppose to expose the top of the roots, otherwise the tree will “choke”.
We choose low maintenance and spreadable plants. My hydrangeas are coming back – YEAH!!! This is one of my favorite flowers.
My absolute favorite flower is a Lily of the Valley. When I was in high school my neighbor had them, Ms. Bear, they have stayed with me all these years – I must grow them. I haven’t been able to grow it and I’ve tried every year for 12 years. I’ll try again this year, once established they spread and have the most wonderful smell.
Down here, we don’t remove the bulbs for tulips and daffodils -
Love these Irises! The spread and you can easily share them. These originated from my grandmothers irises, she passed away some 30 plus years ago.
What are you favorite or EASY flowers to maintain – spread the word because many of us lack that green thumb and need EASY.
