Flowers and Hoochy Bug Swap

Spring has definitely arrived on the west coast.  It has been wet wild and windy here and the bulbs are coming out in full force to show their finery.
 I don't know the name of these lovely little blue flowers in Rita's garden.
 This hellebore looks like layers of a lady's petticoat.
 Crocuses in the dappled sunshine.
 I like these purple and white striped ones with the bright orange stamens.
 All purple, a bit wind blown.
 Another delicate mauve/white star bulb.
 These crocuses almost look translucent and made of chiffon.
 How did they find their way under the rhododendrons?
 Bright orange bells on these daffodils.
 The first tulip in full bloom.
 Lion daffodils.
 Pink flowering winter forsythia in full bloom, love the blue sky behind.
 Hoochy mama dragonflies for my Mary Lou Weidman Bug Swap.
What a lovely time of the year.
