31 Books About Flowers – F is for Flower

31 Books About Flowers - Art, Poetry, History, Science, and Picture books from Vicki-Arnold.com

Flowers are on our minds here, we are (im)patiently waiting to see our first spring flowers. Well, technically, I guess we’ve seen them, but crocuses will bloom in the snow, so they don’t count. I’m waiting for the daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths.

One of my favorite spring time traditions is to take photo of my Mom’s daffodils and the rest of the flowers growing in our little corner of the world. Flowers make me happy. And I had a blast getting these books from the library. I am still waiting on a couple of these to get here, apparently lots of people are excited about flowers right now.
