A Valentine Bouquet

Tuesday morning dawned sunny, very cold - 19f!

Everything seems to have survived the cold night just fine, including this crocus.

I promised a Valentine bouquet, and I think that there's enough blooming to make a nice bouquet including these Tete-a-tete daffodils.

And the roses, while not blooming, are busting out with new red growth.  Can you see it?

Here's a close up.

Dwarf bearded Iris. 

Daffodil "Topolino".

Columbine

Love how this glows in the sunshine.

Currant budding out.

Primula.

Daphne.

Hellebore...

...and another one...

...and another one.

I've never had an issue with voles before, but my front flowerbeds have a large network of vole tunnels.

Bleeding Heart

Podophyllum

Trillium "Volcano"

In October I potted up a few bulbs: daffodils, narcissus, iris, and muscari.  I will soon have lots of color on the front porch.

I agree, the daffodils make a lovely bouquet. I sure hope the temps won't hurt all the little plants that are coming up!!

Oh how gorgeous all of your plants are! I see that my spring daffodils are just coming up. Maybe a hyacinth too... I hope so! I have bulbs to plant in pots about now, so they will bloom for spring... Gotta go get dirt! Hugs!
