Garden photos for the past week

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

Here is a wee and brave daffodil that blooms lovely amongst the crocus.

The week that was, brought overnight lows of 11 degrees and a few days later, daytime temperatures in the 70's. By weeks end, the large, late-season crocus were in bloom.

This striped variety of crocus is my favorite.

At first opportunity, the honey bees were out performing their appointed tasks.
