Photo via http://ow.ly/cngL30a9uSz

With each day comes a new sign of spring. It's such a pleasure to watch the subtle and not-so-subtle changes in animals, plants, and people. One of my favorite signs of spring is seeing robins, cardinals, and other birds scouting out the trees for the best nest locations. I think I have a couple of robins that are very interested in a maple tree growing near my home. This week, I took some time to reflect on other familiar signs of spring.

Endangered Flowers That Will Leave The World A Little Less Beautiful

I know you've heard of the endangered animals list, but did you know there's a list for endangered flowers, too? Flowers throughout the world become endangered for a variety of reasons. Habitat destruction such as flooding, logging, or building can put flowers at risk for extinction. Climate change that brings on flooding or extreme changes in temperature can also affect the flower population. Plus, some types of flowers become very popular with the public and are overused. These 11 flowers are among those that might not be around much longer.
