Today's Flowers

Aaah, it appears spring has sprung….

Today’s photos were all taken yesterday afternoon.

The daffodil was taken at Sunken Gardens.

The remaining photos were taken at Maxwell Arboretum. Maxwell Arboretum is on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

I don’t know what kind of flowers these are, but they were pretty and very dainty. Any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated!

Last, but certainly not least is a Magnolia bud

UPDATE: It was bugging me not to have id's on the three flowers so I did some research today (which I should have done before I posted the photos). Anyway, the purple flower is a Glory of the Snow, the white one is a Common Snowdrop which Babooshka id'd, and the blue and white one is a Striped Squill (what a strange name!)

Beautiful collection of flowers! I cannot help you identifying them, but the lovely white alone on the photo, is a snowdrop - I believe! Must admit I am not sure of the English name....

Nice photos of the flowers. I like the pictures of the sandhill cranes also. I photograph them last fall during our trip to New Mexico. Thanks for visiting our blog and comment.
