Today's Flowers: Confused

Our strange weather confused the plants and some of my narcissus had emerged only to be encased in ice after a storm last weekend.

This morning it was quite cold, well below freezing, but sunny. Something yellow caught my eye and I couldn't believe it.

Although bowed the narcissus above had started blooming, probably confused again by a warm day or two last week.

Another surprise was my lenten rose (hellebore) shown above when it gave way to the weight of ice was trying to make a comeback as shown below. Bowed but with their own beauty. Tough as nails.

Lovely photos but I'm sorry your flowers are confused. It is a bit strange the weather all over. Thanks for sharing Carver, and have a great week :)

I have flowers that bloom when they want to, sometimes in January. :-)

Oh my gosh! I thought I had another month before I started having serious spring flower envy. (Sure hope those beauties make it in your crazy mixed up weather.) I'm envious, but grateful to you for sharing.
