Seasons and Flowers
Flowers bring beauty, joy and fragrance. Every year people need to think of the flowers that they can have in their garden or in their green houses, but they would really want to have the flowers all year around, every season to have flowers. The various climatic changes that occur in cyclic patterns are termed as seasons. There are four general seasons occurring on Earth, spring, summer, fall and winter.
Flowers and Seasons
Flowers and seasons are intimately bound to each other. Most of the flowers are season – specific. Though some flowers are found throughout the year, there are some not particularly affected by changing seasons, Alstromeria, Anthurium, Aster, Bourvardia, Carnation, Chrysanthemum, Gerbera Daisy, Lily, Asiatic Lily. For a flower lover, blossoms and blooms are always in season. Seasonal flowers give you more bang for your buck as the flowers are in plentiful supply in season. Teleflora florists can provide you with the perfect hand-arranged and hand-delivered, for every season. Still, many of our favorite flowers are virtually synonymous with summer, winter, spring and fall. Mention the word tulip and spring comes to mind; when you see a poinsettia, you know Christmas is around the corner. If you have a big event, a wedding or special anniversary, say, it is helpful to familiarize yourself with flowers that will be abundantly available at the time of your celebration.
Spring Time the time of growth and renewal of new plant and animal life. Spring comes at different times in the North and South Hemispheres. Springtime in the Northern hemisphere is between March to May, and between September to November in the Southern hemisphere. Most flowering plants bloom during springtime. Therefore, flowers that bloom only during spring, Spring Flowers, bloom at different times in the two hemispheres. Spring flowers emerge from bulbs planted the previous fall. What gets us through a cold and snowy winter? The promise of healing sunlight and new life, in the form of flowers. As a kid, you probably could not wait to run outside and see the bright color of a tulip pushing its way through dark soil after a long period of bleakness. They typically appear after the danger of frost has passed.

Summer is the time of hot and warm weather. Floral growth is best in the summer season. The Northern hemisphere experiences summer during June, July, and August, while in the Southern hemisphere, during December to February. Summer is the season of the Midnight sun in the North Pole and Ice land. Warmer weather and extended periods of sun support so many summer flowers in bloom. Beaches, barbecues, lazy days and weekend getaways and naturally blue flowers, like hydrangea and delphinium are stars of the season.
