Springtime is synonymous with flowers, especially bright-colored, bold and vibrant flowers. When spring flowers are in bloom, it feels like a rejuvenation and a fresh start. Although spring comes at different times in different parts of the country, spring flowers will usually bloom around the same time.

The initial gloomy days of spring are worth what’s waiting on the other side. After all, April showers bring May flowers!
