Monday, April 4
The weather is warmer, the birds are chirping and everything seems to be in full bloom. As the warm weather approaches it brings ball games, swimming pool days, playing in the park and a variety of other outdoor activities- that's what spring is about!
Springtime also brings about the fever to plant and play in the dirt. No, I am not talking about mudholes and sandboxes but gardening, landscaping and all the outdoor projects that you have wanted to do.
Did you know that water gardens are one of the most popular features added to the home yard in the world today? Water gardens bring a sense of peacefulness and pleasure to anyone who is around them. Water gardens brings a certain amount of excitement to a child, just wondering if there are fish swimming around or the excitement of an adult to watch as new species of plants grow amongst them.
Cattails, water lilies,Water lilies, water cress and the umbrella plant are just a few of the best water plants that there are. All of these plants are low maintenance and do well in either shade or sun.
Water lilies make an attractive addition to a water garden or pond because they just float ever so gracefully on top of the water. come in a wide variety of colors such as yellow, pink or red just to name a few. Watching water lilies float on top of the water as the frogs jump about makes for a great afternoon of fun.
