First of all, a belated Happy Chinese New Year to everyone. It was on Jan. 31st this year, but we tend to celebrate all month long.

Quince blossoms traditionally are used for Chinese New Year decoration since they are one of the few things blooming during this time of the year.

I was amazed at how many other plants are blooming right now. We have had a very mild winter.

Nice photos! My hellebores also have been blooming for a long time now, but the quince is still nothing but buds.

I see a lot of things popping up in bloom here now after having gotten some rains...feather acacias are planted quite a bit here and they're blooming everywhere, seeing broom starting to bloom and I see now..1 ox-eye daisy in the lawn...I think many consider them a nuisance, but I'm charmed by their presence, plus the red clover and the white clover...all of which will be gone since I'll be keeping no grass anyway.
I could be wrong...

An un-named rhody......or could it be an azalea...I'm lacking in both those areas...

This I like, though it's un-named also...posted it in ID forum....

75 degrees here today. Even the azaleas are blooming - several weeks ahead of normal schedule.

I hope so too.....I was actually surprised by this small botanical garden on the way into Brookings...it's the first time that I've stopped to take a look and they had several plants that we didn't have in our database...however, it was frustrating that there were a lot of plants un-identified. I plant to go back now once a week or so to see what else is coming into bloom. It's planted and maintained by the local Garden Club.

I saw several large rhodys in bloom today, but they were out of the way for stopping. There is a large one in the front of this house we're in, but it hasn't bloomed yet. I'm not overly attracted to Rhodys, but maybe I will be lucky and it will be a subtle one..although going by the choice of the camellias they'd planted, I doubt it....lol..
