The prettier side of Winter

Quite a few of my recent posts have been about the miserable and/or cold weather we have been experiencing recently.  So lets brighten up with some flowers.  Not surprisingly they are all bulbs - a plant has to have a good energy store to push out flowers in this season.

Before we left on our trip North one daffodil was in bud in front of the kitchen window.  We thought it a pity that we would miss its emergence.  As a result of the truncation of our trip we haven't.
 Here are its friends!


I rather like the string of drops fringing the flower, so here is a close up-up.
