firsts...

Can you tell me the name of these...some kind of violet?

First Tulip to come out

First Daffodil

I call these glories of the snow...but I really don't know

Beautiful flowers! The blue and white flowers make me think of Clematis, but I'm sure it's not that.

I can't believe how much further along your flowers are than mine. You might be 20 miles further south but you are closer to the water (Lake Huron). There is maybe 40 miles between us. I have nuttin. A couple of daffs, no tulips, but I do have squill and Chionodoxa (Glory of the Snow). I looked in my garden notebook and I had the cardboard from the bag of bulbs I bought several years ago. Mine are spreading but not as fast as the squill. I need to go out and tie a string to the white squill I have. There might be about 10 bulbs offering up white instead of blue.

Oh I forgot to mention.....I think your mystery flower is primrose but I'm not sure. I'll consult my flower book if I can locate it....LOL

I found it....Primula...which includes primrose. Look it up on wikipedia. They have photos. I didn't realize that they grow here or that they bloom in the spring.

Thanks for letting me know what they are called...and confirming the name of the other. I'll add it to my flower spreadsheet. I may have more that I'd like you to identify in the future, when they start blooming.

Keep some squill seedpods for me :)

I most definitely will keep some squill pods for you.
