New Year’s Day Collage: First Flowers of 2014

Happy New Year!!!

Let’s celebrate by taking a look at the Ranchero’s first flowers of 2014.

We’ve been having a very strange “winter” of atypically warm, wet weather and the garden is making a bit of a comeback.  Vines that normally rest this time of year are putting out new buds, and tropical perennials are blooming more intensely (and much earlier) than previous winter seasons:

And now, the best of the rest, in collage form:

I hope you enjoyed this first post of 2014, and that you’ll stop in often throughout the new year!

Until next time……

happy new year

  1. Yes, we have been having a strange “winter” so far here in Florida. Like you I have been enjoying all the flowers that normally should not have been blooming.
    Thank you so much for posting your flower photos. They are beautiful indeed.

  2. Just wanted to wish you a very Happy New Year and thank you for being one of my top commenters on Escape from Chaos. May this be a wonderful gardening year for both of us! Thank you again.

  3. As the temperature and snow fall around me, it’s so nice to see some greenery and colorful flowers! Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year will bring in your garden!

  4. Happy Happy New Year! Lovely to see your flowers this morning since it is 1F here in Missouri with an inch of snow on the ground and four more inches coming tomorrow with record low temps! Love the Beach Sunflower and Cosmos!
