The First Flowers of Spring

The flowers in the flowerbed in front of the house don't seem to mind the cold temperatures and snow as much as we humans seem to. 

The flowers are popping up and hanging in there.  I don't know how many insects are around at this point to do their pollinating thing.

Not only are the leaves and stems coming up, but the crocuses are getting close to blooming.

I thought this guy might have opened up by the time I got home, but it looks like it will take another day or two.  Maybe tomorrow.
