Spring is near !

How many of you have, or have not tried your hand at gardening ?

It's a wonderful hobby and an excellent way to keep your mind and body active.

Are you a natural at plant care ( a green thumb ) or no matter how hard you try, the plants just will not co-operate and grow ?

What is your favorite plant and what do you grow ?

Thanks Mays. The first article helped me with my avocado trees. They are still in pots but I thought I had lost them to a freeze. Fortunately, they are growing new leaves and I want to plant them this year. They're special because my son and I each planted one and it's the only seeds I've had that grew.
I read that gardening burns just as many calories as walking. That will give me some variety in exercise, especially when the temperatures get over 100f.

“The splendor of the rose and the whitness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its lovliness.”

I am very familiar with canna lilies, they are very colorful as well as beautiful, tall, majestic and dignified, in my opinion, the most regal of all of the members of the lily family, a true standout !
