We've had several hard frosts and yet some determined flowers continue to try blooming. One brave spike speedwell is all purple and pretty.
Speaking of purple, my wonderful Oregon lupins blooms like crazy in spring and sometimes poke out a few flowers in fall too.
My pale purple phlox popped out another beautiful array...
...as did the dark purple phlox, albeit a smaller effort.
And dear old digitalis just keeps on rubbing its nose in the wake of winter, with a whole new set of buds ready to bloom.
