A flower is looking through the ground,
Blinking at the April weather;
Now a child has seen the flower:
Now they go and play together.
-Harold Monroe (1879-1932)
What flowers bloom first in April?
The garden is transformed when spring-flowering bulbs come into bloom. The days may still be nippy but cool spring temperatures are just right for daffodils, crocus, tulips, and other spring-flowering bulbs…Plant them in fall, and on a chilly day in spring, bundle up and enjoy the show.
