Spring & Summer at Hibiscus House

Who does not love Spring?  I know, I know allergy sufferers. How do I know?  I am one of them. Allergic to everything even to the grass beneath my feet. I have to say though I love Spring and Summer.  It is my most favorite time of the year.  Everything comes to life, birds are singing, fluttering around, and building nest such a happy time. It is a wonderful thing to see the grass growing turning green, flowers beginning to bloom everything is budding out.  Don't you just love to see the first blooms of Spring? .
I love flowers, shrubs, trees. My mama has the greenest thumb and I

only wish mine were half as green. I do try though. I love to garden, both flower and vegetable. Roses are my favorite that's for sure, next I would have to say Hydrangeas. What are your favorites?
Isn't it such a pleasure to go shopping at the nurseries after the threat of frost is over?  It is such an exciting time. There are some really good greenhouses and nurseries in our area. We do have the best farmer's market in the area too. 

My favorite places to purchase flowers etc are:

Taylor's Garden & Gift Shop 3rd Loop Road, Florence, S. C.

Another wonderful place to buy is:  Forest Lake Greenhouses on Alligator Road in Florence,SC

Amerson's Nursery in Lamar, S. C. has a great selection of trees, shrubs of all kinds.

Last but not least we have an excellent farmer's market The Pee Dee Farmer's Market on W. Lucas St. in Florence, S. C. that has a Spring Festival and a Fall Festival lots of beautiful plants, flowers, vegetables to choose from.
