Another sign of our mild winter - the hydrangeas are setting blooms.  Mother Nature can be a cruel mistress.  I hope she doesn't wack them with a hard freeze :P

My Sweet Olive has flowers and I'm getting some decent rose blooms. I'll be pruning the roses hopefully this weekend.

A sure sign that Spring is on its way - the paperwhites have started blooming.  It's amazing how the blooms can pop-up almost overnight.

I was at my son's house yesterday, and his azalea on the southwest side of his house has buds showing color already.

Today I saw 2 open Pride of Mobile azaleas.  The camelias have been in full glory all winter and the flowers are perfect since there hasn't been any real cold to burn the buds.  Some pac choi has bolted with lots of yellow flowers in case any bees are stirring.  My pea plants are also blooming.

I left one broccoli plant to bloom for the bees.  My Gerbera daisies have been blooming all winter.  Shrimp plants still blooming and I have an occasional bloom on my winter worn hibiscus.  This has been a warm winter.

my 3 year old pointed out today that our daffodils have the yellow heads on them.  they should open any day now.

weird thing is my azalea has that thinned out look it gets right before it buds.  seems kinda early to me, but hey, when it happens it happens.

Blueberries. This bush started blooming in December and already has green berries on it. The other bushes have sporadic blooms or none at all at the moment.

The azaleas are starting to open here.  In another week, the bushes should be covered with blooms.
