The Colours of Winter

Now that the shortest day is past and the days are getting longer, the flora is starting to come out with late Winter colours. Our daffodils are growing, tulips are popping up and some plants are even poking out tentative buds. Even though evenings temperatures are still dropping to around -1 to 0 Celsius (about 30-32F) you can feel warmer times are on the way.
Here is one of our first daffodils with Clare looking on in the background.

Such a short winter you have!
We go from snow and ice (Winter) to mud season and a month or two of summer then to fall and jumps back to Winter again.(which can be around -20F or so sometimes.)

I love tulips! They're my favorite flower!
