Plant now?

Plant now?

I'm moving into my new house on/around 10/23. In Iowa, it should be pretty cold by then, but I don't think the ground will be frozen yet. I would love to have flowers bloom in the spring. Am I supposed to plant bulbs now? I've never had a yard, so I'm not sure what to do. Will it be too late to plant when I move in? I was thinking tulips, daffodils, irises and crocus'. Will these bulbs freeze over the winter and die? Please help! :)
