SPLASH of COLOR
While flowers have long been admired by humans for bringing beauty to our environment, they also have been the object of romance, rituals, religion, medicines and even food. Also known as a bloom or blossom, a flower is simply a biologically reproductive structure, displaying a bouquet of colors to brighten up our worldly landscape...Walter Pietrowicz
• AROUND the HOUSE
Indoors, African Violets, Orchids or Peace Lilies can brighten your interior living space, while Petunias, Impatiens, Fuchsias add color to the outside landscape.
• in the WILD
Also known as native species, wildflowers are generally flowers that grow in the wild that were not intentionally seeded or planted. Yes, wildflower seed packets are sold and can be planted, but in many cases, an uprooted wildflower will not survive a replant.
• FLOWERING TREES
Besides offering excellent shade, flowering trees add aesthetic beauty, especially at springtime, to any garden. Some even produce delicious fruit such as apples, cherries and pears.
