Today's Flowers: Snow, Sleet and Sunshine

I'm starting with flower shots I took on Monday and am moving through the week.
I've already posted quite a few Monday shots in other posts but I took so many of my flowers in the snow and ice that I had some left.
The shots above are narcissus and the ones below with ice are camellias.
I think flowers are very pretty with snow and ice on them.
I'm not sure though that the flowers like it very much.
The narcissus below are my neighbor's and I shot them after the wintry mix melted. The red icy camellia above is also my neighbor's. The first four shots are in my garden.
I also shot a lot of narcissus at a corner store.
You can see that they got beat down pretty badly.
The next two shots are of the photinia at the same shopping area.
They have withstood the temperature fluctuations well.
From a distance the border of narcissus look pretty in spite of bowing down.
The last shot is of a clivia blossom in water at my house.

The Photinia look so pretty!
I am surprised that the flowers are surviving the cold!

A lovely collection Carver. The snow is very pretty on the flowers. I hope the weather doesn't confuse them too much :)

The border of narcissus is such a lovely spring shot! Love the camellias in ice.

They are resilient, even with snow they are still able to survive.

I am glad to see that they didn't get totally destroyed....

you have spring flowers already. You are lucky. I don´t think they will be harmed by the snow. :) And, as you say, it makes great shots.

The mix of winter and spring make a lovely series of pictures. In Oregon sometimes (actually pretty often) we'd get a hard rainstorm right after the daffodils bloomed and it would knock their heads off -- always made me want to cry. But at least we HAD daffodils back then.
