What's interesting in your garden now? Winter bloomers? I don't know many besides Camellias.

I have three re-blooming iris that are still going strong, which is very late for them. The crazy weather has extended their bloom time.

That's very cool! I've still got some excellent late blooms too, but as you said that's unusual for those plants. I'm looking for things that would normally bloom during "the off-season," in particular.

Flowering Quince. Mine is in bloom now. Often it blooms in January-February. I like it because it is a splash of color when everything else is brown.

I've seen Carolina jessamine blooming mid-winter around here; anytime between Dec.-Feb.

My Mom's neighbor's Osmanthus fragrans has been scenting her whole neighborhood for the past few weeks, although that might be a bit of an anomaly from the really long fall? Not a plant I know well. (Just a few flirts with light frost here so far.) So awesome, in any case!

I also have quince, tea olive, and camellias blooming. A few daffodils have started blooming as well. My azaleas (Encore and regular) have bloomed and are just about through. There are probably other things but I just can't think of what they are right now.

Winter daphne and edgeworthia are my dependable winter bloomers...very very fragrant.

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved
