Spring is here and it's time to be thinking of spring, cute baby animals, and flowers!

Show us flower-themed Instructables -- anywhere, not just in the garden or vase -- and enter our Flower Contest!

If you can provide instructions and photos for creating or growing some type of flower and put it into an Instructable, then we want to see it. The flowers can fresh, dried, painted, or crafted; they can be a decoration, an inspiration, an ingredient, or even real live flowers planted in dirt.

April showers bring May flowers, so show us some spring!
