More Flowers Abloom

The beauty of nature is all around. I have several flowers blooming and some a really neat. This is a double daffodil. The small red leafed tree is also blooming with a pretty pink flower.
Here is a close-up of the flower.
We have a pink tulip that has a wonderful shade of pink.
And the red tulip is in all it's glory.
We were pretty lucky this morning in that it got close to freezing after being in the 70's F for a week. As I was driving to work this morning tiny snow flakes were blowing over the car. We have at least one more cold day. I hope it doesn't hurt the fruit trees that are bloomed.

We can tiptoe out the back door or go thru the garage right now. I like your little tree and the sign that says Nana and Papa!

Wow... you have some wonderful photos and the tulips are huge and so vibrant. I have yet to see the flowers come up full yet but they are sprouting and I am excited!

The daffodil is a beautiful specimen..love how it's a cream colour and the red shrub also lovely - flower reminds me of a tea-tree of which there are many varieties growing in Australia and the birds love them! Looking forward to seeing lots more as it warms up :O)

These are beautiful! It was 31°F when I woke up this morning, but my flowers look okay.

Beautiful flowers, I hope the cold doesn't get the fruit trees too.
