Today's Flowers and Weekend Flowers: Lots of blooms

There is a lot going on in my neck of the woods.
We're still having some very cold nights so some of the flowers are short lived. Some of the camellias were lost during snow when they bloomed much too early but others are opening up now.
My redbud trees are beginning to bloom.
I like their tiny blooms on the trees.
Below is a closer look at the redbud tree flowers.
The Narcissus below is one of my favorites of the varieties I have in my yard.
I can't ever remember the name of the flowers below. I planted the bulbs for these decades ago and they come up every spring.
I think the camellias are pretty on the ground where they were blown off the bushes during a cold windy night.
I have several varieties of periwinkle.
They are one of my front yard ground covers.
Another shot of some of my Narcissus.
I've been going out each morning when there is a hard frost to see what is fairing well.
I love this time of the year.
My white camellias aren't blooming which is good in a way because they'll last longer once they do bloom if they don't have to contend with the cold nights. The pink and red camellias are in my neighbors yard close to me so I enjoy them from my yard and windows. All the other flowers in this post are in my yard.
