I awoke this morning to lovely mist in the adjacent pasture, and a thin, turquoise sky threaded with fluffy clouds. We are warming. I say ‘at last’, and know those of you in the northern regions laugh. Along the Gulf Coast, Spring starts a month earlier than the calendar date–February 20– so says the Mobile Register gardening expert.
Last blooms. My dear old fashioned Christmas cactus, 33 years old, bloomed over two months this year!
Sweet Olive blossoms. I'm sorry they are fuzzy--the camera and I have limitations. We now have two Sweet Olive trees. They bloom in the fall, when it gets cold, and sporadically through the winter. Smell divine!
Magnolia Stellata bloom ready to pop. It will be white, feathery blossoms. I'm grateful to another GBBD participant who shared a photo last month and gave me the name for my bush.
Paperwhites at the base of a pecan tree. The paperwhites have been blooming since the new year. Not like last year when they came up at once in the spring. I adore the strong scent.
Enjoy visiting other bloggers taking part in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, kindly hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens.

I read this and see these beautiful pictures as I look out the window of my “new dwelling” to iced over streets, fallen frozen tree limbs and I intermittently help my creative chatterbug granddaughter whose whole family has become out of power “residents”. What a great day and part of the reason for moving so close!
Great to see you have some blooms! I hope the spring comes soon to you
Is the sweet olive the same as tea olive (Osmanthus)? That’s on my list of things that might grow here in central Virginia, or might not. Gardens should be fragrant! 🙂
I’m glad you found a few blooms to share…they prove spring is on the way. happy Bloom Day!
Great to see your photos from balmy AL. I am in snow-covered Pennsylvania, but the temperature suddenly shot up and I managed to find some flowers outside. Happy GBBD, Carolyn
Sigh…..just beautiful! I want to be in Alabama soooo bad! Maybe this summer, fingers crossed! Hope you have a beautiful day, my friend!
