I believe these are called Viola (or Johnny Jump Ups). I love them because they are one of the first flowers up and they stay flowering (and spreading themselves like wild!) until late fall. They are very hardy which is perfect for me.
Another Viola - they come in such pretty colours and pop up even if you forget to weed your garden.
Fritillaria from Heather. So pretty!!! (Message to my husband in Siberia: look in the background to see height of new cedars. Also notice wheelbarrow that hardworking wife has been using - even with it's flat tire)
This was originally going to be a shot of my lovely tulips but then I noticed the spider on the middle flower (not sure what kind but I'm sure Katherine will let me know). I quickly took the picture before it had time to leap and attack. I'm thinking of applying to assist David Attenborough...
