I am grateful for flowers. I love to see flowers bloom. The first crocus blooming through snow is such a delight. The tulips, daffodils and other springtime flowers bring hope for the coming growing season. The blossom covered fruit trees are so beautiful to see. As the year goes on irises, gladiolas, lilies, tiger lilies and other flowers provide so much color. Later in the summer marigolds and sunflowers are plentiful.
