How does you flower garden grow? Hmm, let's see one of my flower garden spots are here in my front yard. I have 2 different Hostas plants and a type of Tiger Lily's also a couple of Lily's of the Valley. The Hostas have grown so much in the last 2 years that this year I'll need to do some dividing and then I'll have many lil Hostas to plant all over again. They say that you're really suppose to divide your Hostas in the early Spring, but I believe that I'm going to do it at the end of Fall this year. My Hostas have the most beautiful purple flowers that shoot out from the gorgeous green foliage. I just love them!
I also have Lily's of the Valley in this flower garden, along the one side of my home and in the side flower garden! Right now they're not in bloom though, but you can see their gorgeous foliage they have! They bloom in the very early Spring and the fragrance that come from those are just beautiful, somewhat of a very sweet scent...just a wonderful aroma! They have small white bell like lil flowers on them that are just so pretty.
I do in the very early Spring also have Daffodils and Tulips here in this flower garden to. That's before the Hostas comes back up though but they all look fantastic!
Then I wanted to show you how absolutely gorgeous this flower really is. How vibrant it's color is! I wish that you would be able to smell it's beautiful fragrance that it has.
There are many species of Lily's, about 110 or so different kinds. They're very easy to grow, come from a bulb and very easy to transplant! Did you know that Lily's also attract Hummingbirds? So if you're a Hummingbird lover like I am...get yourself some beautiful Lily's!
