Today's Flowers: Preview to spring

Yesterday, I went outside to see what signs of spring flowers I could find. The narcissus below is emerging from the ground.

The hydrangea bud may be a bit premature as they tend to get zapped by frost in the early spring and need to start all over. Our last average frost isn't until sometime in April.

I've posted my lenten rose before, as it started blooming too early even for being one of the earliest flowers. Definitely droopy but still hanging tough.

I've never heard of the hellebore flower called Lenten Rose. I like that name much better. Great pictures of the earth coming to life again.
