We only just had our first frost about a week ago, and it was a mild one, with the frost gone by mid-morning. We had a string of overnight frosts followed by not-so-cold, dry days, but before the frost I went around and captured some pictures of what was blooming. So this isn't technically what's blooming today, but last week. I guess that's close enough.
