Senior enjoying spring flowers

Spring Has Sprung!

One of the most beautiful times of the year is when Spring first begins. Looking around, there are lovely flowers blooming and all the birds have returned with a song to sing. It’s the best time to take a walk in the park because the weather is at the perfect temperature and there’s so much more to see with everything in bloom. 

Better than simply viewing flowers coming to life is planting some yourself. There is a great variety to choose from as well as different kinds to fit the needs of everyone. Plants for the garden, plants for indoors, and plants that don’t require much nurture at all. It can be as simple as buying them from the store and placing them on your windowsill. 

PerennialsSpring Perennials

When it comes to perennial flowers, these plants will regrow every year around the same time. This is great for someone who doesn’t want to spend too much time planting and more time appreciating the same lovely flora each year. If you know how you want your environment to look, perennials will allow you to spend time and effort creatively to produce a returning vision of beauty.

Annuals

An annual flower is best for when looking for a flower or plant to enjoy during springtime but not worry about caring for it the next year. Unlike perennials, annuals won’t regrow each year. This is also very useful when you want to continuously change the look and feel of your environment. Planting these in a garden surrounded by perennials will allow you to creatively transform your garden each year, and empower the choice to replant something new.

Indoor Flora

Indoor PlantsThere’s a variety of plants to choose from when the goal is to keep them inside. Not all flowers and plants have to spend all their time outside. Plus, a great benefit to keeping your plants in your home is the fresh oxygen they produce. This will help with breathing and positively affect your overall health. There are a lot of green plants like succulents and foliage with long leaves that are great indoors. Plants like Paddle Plant, Lady Palm, and Spider Plant are great to liven up your space. If you’re wanting to fill your home with color, flowers like Peace Lily, Crown of Thorns, or Phalaenopsis Orchid will provide a burst of life.  

Low Maintenance Plants

Cactus and Succulents

For people who don’t have a lot of time or energy to maintain a garden full of flowers but still want to appreciate the beauty that having a plant in the home brings,  look for low maintenance. Lush green plants like Aloe Vera and Lucky Bamboo can be both beautiful and useful. Aloe Vera, specifically, can be eaten and used as a skin cleanser, the properties it has makes it a very healthy choice. Another great plant that has a large variety to choose from is the Cactus. Planting Cacti can be easy, they are great both indoor or outdoor, and they will last for years.

One of the most beautiful times of year is Spring, with flowers and plants blooming. It’s a good time to start planting, whether it’s outside in the sun or brightening the house up with indoor plants.
