Flower of the Month: Ranunculus

Flower of the Month Ranunculus

Spring is my favourite season. I love watching nature awaken from a deep slumber, like a bear out of hibernation.

For me, spring feels like a rebirth. Northern gardeners like myself have had to sit and wait, patiently, and daydream about a garden covered in snow. A garden that was once flourishing, but is now only an outline.

When winter turns to spring, and the days become longer, I begin to feel renewed and energized. I can feel a difference in the air, as cold wind becomes warm and the ground softens under my feet.

I feel excited and motivated to get back in the garden and start planting. If you’ve started your seedlings and they are ready for transplanting into larger containers, please see my post “15 Steps to Successfully Transplant your Seedlings“.

The swelling buds on trees, the green of newly emerging spring flowers, the fresh smell in the air, it truly is an exciting and hopeful time of year.

In honour of spring, I would like to talk about my favourite spring flower!

After waiting all summer with bated breath, my Geranium plant failed to bloom.

Then I did a little digging and found out why.
