The next wave of flowers

An update on my garden. The next flowers to bloom are the "Glory of the Snow", the "Siberian Squill" and the "Striped Squill" have also started to open.

I have a few clumps of these, including one pink group. (Which for some reason I didn't take a pictures of, what was I thinking.) I love these cheerful little flowers that fill the gap between the crocus and the daffodils.

These pictures were taken a couple of days ago. Today it's a much different world.
The wind howled, the snow fell and everything froze. 

I hope the buds and flowers haven't frozen off. I'll keep you posted. Goodnight from the frozen north.

Love the flower pictures. Sorry you're having such cold weather . . . but sometimes spring can bring surprises!

Thanks Martha. Yes, as much as we complain, this is normal for spring here. It can quite easily keep doing this for another month. But really, if this is all we have to complain about, then life isn't too bad. Whenever I feel whiney I think of what some people are dealing with and then I feel pretty lucky.

Thank you for visiting my table this week, so I could find your blog! I love your photos of the squill, which I've never heard of before. They are gorgeous! We just returned today from a trip to Toronto for a conference and were amazed to see tulips in such profusion! Simply stunning!
