Soon smaller plants and flowers will be beginning to emerge from their dormant winter stage, deciduous shrubs will begin to bud and leaf out, and wild flowers are about to peak out and bloom, giving splashes of color. Tulips will be opening up, if they have not already, with bright blooms of reds, purples, and yellows. Some flowers do not bloom until later in the year (which is crucial to a continuously flowering and colorful garden), such as peonies. However, if you cut some of the blooms from a peony bush, you can bring them inside. The warmer temperatures and water in the vase inside will coax the peony flowers to bloom sooner than usual and will give your home décor a splash of color!
