The air is warm with an earthy scent, robins are hopping along, and assorted flowers are breaking through winter soil. All of these indications point to the coming of spring, a beautiful and colorful time of rebirth and renewal. Shake the winter blues for good this year with three of the top spring flowers, guaranteed to add sunshine and smiles to your day.
Here are three of the most beautiful spring flowers to enjoy this season:
The daffodil is a sunny sign of spring. This dazzling yellow flower features a trumpet shape and many variations, including those with light yellow and orange hues. A perennial bloom, daffodils emerge early in the spring season to provide gardens with the color they need after a long, harsh winter. Much like spring, daffodils represent new beginnings.
Tulips are a gorgeous cup or star-shaped perennial that comes in a range of colors, including red, orange, pink, and light purple. They are associated with the Easter holiday and are often used to line gardens and walkways. Tulips symbolize the “perfect lover,” with multi-colored blooms representing people with beautiful eyes. They also symbolize happiness.
This short-lived perennial comes in a variety of colors and shapes; however, the purple iris is, perhaps, the most well-known. A tall flower, irises have long green stems with fan-like blooms, allowing them to peek over other garden flowers. Purple irises symbolize wisdom while blue irises represent faith and hope. White and yellow irises symbolize purity and passion.
Other spring flowers that add beauty to any garden or living space include the pansy, lilac, lily of the valley, and crocus.
