Default Some Weekend Color

Late cold weather in February has delayed the outburst of tulips and other blooms at the local botanical garden, but there were a few hearty early bloomers in evidence this afternoon. Of a group of Japanese camellia trees, this was the only one in bloom.

Most of the tulips were still shivering in their buds

But, here and there, early varieties were getting ready to bloom, and in one case, a lone yellow bloom

A couple of others I thought were pretty, but I have no idea what they are

By the end of next week I'm hoping most of the thousands of tulips in the gardens will be in bloom.

Extremely pretty and colorful Paul!
you did good on these. Sure am glad to see spring come around.
I suppose I'll be complaining the heat before too long.

Nice flower pictures! Can't help you with ID on the last two, but they sure are neat looking. I really like the camellia.

I guess you could say that spring has arrived in Pennsylvania - it's rained for the past 3 days rather than snowed. One more day and we'll be heading back out west - I'll be glad to see the sun again. Our weather might be very boring but at least there's lots of different colors.

The first of your 'no idea what they are' looks like a hyacinth to me. Your spring-flowering bulbs are just starting to bloom and we're just planting ours.

I agree with Bernice - both look like Hyacinths to me.

Great job on all these fine blooms - especially nice Camellia blooms - rich color, fine detail, great composition...
