I like colors, mainly blue and orange. I don't know what the name of the blue flowers my wife had planted the one year but they were pretty cool looking. I like the orange tulips.

I don't know what they are called, maybe tiger lillies? I see them all the time along the roads by farm fields.

I'll agree the tiger lilies are pretty cool looking. They really grew well here, last year. I guess they liked the cool, wet summer we had.
One of my favorites I planted, last year, was Morning Glories. It's fascinating to watch them open up in the morning. They definitely live up to their name!! I'm going to plant a lot more of them this year.

My wife likes the bleeding hearts. I can't remember the name of it but it started with a g (I know a lot of help right LOL) I think it was some sort of daisy maybe but that was my flower that I planted and took care of that year because I liked the thing so much. It was a neat peach/orange color.

We have many daffodils planted to signal the arrival of spring. Lilacs are planted in the back giving a variety of color and fragrance.We have some hydrangeas given to us by the neighbor. Like Bolens 1000 we have several bleeding hearts,which the youngest grandson liked so much we bought him his own and planted it at the daughter's house. Really looking forward to the colors of spring. Had enough white for this year!

My mom was English, always had roses and I have kind of carried on that tradition.........When she died, I transplanted a couple of her 40 year old rose bushes to our house.

My wife also likes the Bleeding Hearts....we have a couple

I've always liked daffodils. They tell me that spring is here & I can stop chiseling ice from my windshield. :D
