Darla how wonderful to have flowers blooming in January! Here in my world of ice and snow..I'm drooling over Today's Flowers!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Only in Florida, Darla.. We have some candy tuft also--but it only blooms only in spring here. Your Impatiens look a little like Vinca. Gorgeous!!!

How's life at your home now??? I hope it's much BETTER.
Hugs,
Betsy

So wonderful to have flowers growing 'today'. We have a wee bit of blue sky and fresh snow. Lovely pics.

Leora said...

I've never seen a shrimp plant! I love looking at all your flowers, especially as our garden won't come back until spring (and even then, I need to replant annuals). Candy tuft is so pretty.

Beautiful shots!

Norm said...

Hi Darla,
You must live in South Florida! Such pretty flowers in the dead of winter!

Reader Wil said...

Beautiful blooms as always Darla. Alot of those won't be showing signs of life in my garden for at least 9 weeks. :( I love your Camelia, I definitely need to add one of those to my garden this spring.

Shionge said...

Just wanna thank you for sharing all these lovely photos with us despite the 'anguish' that is still going on.

You take care.

lili said...

I love your pictures. So many beautiful flowers. Wow ... awsome!

Arija said...

What a wealth of flowers, so beautiful. Candy Tuft is one of the gems of a garden as it absolutely glows in the moonlight.

Carletta said...

I have to wonder how much time you spend in the garden - it's full of beauty!

Amanda said...

Darla,
the Camellias are to die for!

fishing guy said...

Darla: What a beautiful series of flowers today and they are really abloom. I certainly hope they bring a smile to your face during this time.

niartist said...

Darla these are gorgeous, and just the inspiration I needed to start thinking about gardening again. (However, with 12" of snow on the ground - that's not so easy!) Have a great week - hope things are going better for you! Have a good week.

Olga said...

Love the camelias.

The flowers remind me of spring and summer...they are just around the corner, right?

Raven said...

How lucky to have so many flowers blooming in your garden. Because of the draught I don't have many flowers now. Tomorrow it is going to be 41 degrees so might have some more losses!

Sandradb said...

I just don't know which flower to pick - they are all fantastic!

Natural Moments said...

A beautiful garden. A lot of good feelings and colours to take in.

RuneE said...

I fell for the blue one - maybe because it is a more seldom colour?

Dani said...

Love the camelias! They just don't seem to love me, they croak on me everytime.

The milkweed flower is one of my favorite wild flowers.

What a lovely parade of flowers. They look especially good to me today with my bleak landscape outside the window.

Leedra said...

The Shrimp Plant is the most unusual. Don't remember that one from before. Is it new?

I have started a 2nd blog. Hope you will follow it, it will be the one I posted at daily now. Although I will still post at the original one.

Darla said...

Thanks for all of the prayers and wonderful comments guys and dolls.
Dorothy--we live in North Florida and Jack Frost is on his way. These flowers may be gone in a few days.
Leedra- yes I will follow your new blog, I know you didn't doubt that, I have already been there. The shrimp plant is not new, I also have a golden one they just get overlooked from time to time!

2sweetnsaxy said...

Such nice flowers. They make me feel bad that I've been neglecting my yard. I only have roses blooming and I need to get out there and prune them.

Susan said...

Your flowers look beautiful! I hope that you're not expecting freezing temperatures in your area later this week.

Frances said...

Hi Darla, what a gush of spring like blooms! Thanks for giving us a taste of color when our days are dreary and sunless!

Valerie said...

Oh this makes me want to have spring come quickly. These flowers are beautiful. Hopefully life is going to slow down soon and I can get back to reading your blog on a regular basis. I have missed you a lot.

Gail said...

Lovely Darla! You are the envy of all of us north of you! I remember having a pink shrimp plant as a houseplant when I was a college student!
