In the spirit of spring coming to Texas soon, many of us are starting to plan out what we want to add to our gardens, flower beds, or even inside to brighten up the home.

There are so many beautiful plants out there to add color, texture, and dimension to any space. From bright florals to bold greenery, something about having plants around simply boosts everyone’s moods.

What's the issue?

The only problem is that you must be careful about the plants you get if you have pets. There are many plants out there that are toxic and even deadly if consumed by dogs or cats. So, if your pet is prone to snacking on anything and everything, you must be careful about what you bring into your home.

Thankfully, there are also some plants that are completely safe for pets and won’t cause a fuss.
