Share My World

Introducing a new monthly feature here at My Florida Backyard: Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day! This monthly event was started by a blogger named Carol at her blog, May Dreams Gardens, and now over 100 bloggers participate, sharing all of the blooms in their own gardens on the 15th of each month. Starting this month, we do too!

Blooms in My Florida Backyard seem to be about three weeks ahead of normal this year, thanks to the very warm January. The mild freeze this past weekend scared us a bit, but there was no real damage. Below is a collage - click here to view a complete slideshow.

There's a lot going on here - in the coming days, look for posts on our mailbox landscaping and forcing tulips. The Hippeastrum out front is about to burst into bloom too, so expect to see that post soon. In the meantime, if you have your own garden blog, why not join in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day? If you do, drop a link to your post in the comments below - we'd love to check it out!


  1. What a lot of lovely blooms Jill.

    I was 'sweating' while working in the sun today. We're definitely having a very mild winter down here in s.e. FL.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  2. You certainly have quite a lot going on in your February garden. Love your collage showing all those beautiful blooms. I see you have the creamy Russelia too. That's something I want to plant more of here in my garden.
