Most of your spring flowers, especially bulbs, are considered hardy and accustomed to these conditions. Although they sometimes pop up early under mild winter conditions, there's usually no need to worry if temps drop again. However, if the temperature drops and it makes you feel more at ease, you can cover them with a blanket at night but remove it during the day.
