So glad you responded. I thought people might think I'm nuts claiming all the plants I listed are blooming.
Your pictures are great. Once this rain is past I will take a couple of photos and add it to the list. :-)

Some things that are blooming for me now (south Sarasota county) are butterfly cassia, bougainvillea, lion's tail, blue sky vine, Carolina jasmine, powderpuff shrubs, red firespike, and red shrimp plant (just planted earlier this month). Here are a few photos (got a new camera for Christmas!).

Not a flower, but colorful!

Here in Central FL, zone 9b (The Villages) my Bougainvillea is blooming.
I like to see what others have blooming. I'm trying to find something similar to the Bougie that doesn't have thorns! Any suggestions appreciated.

Marcia, That's one great camera. Amazing closeups. Thanks!
Stitchem ... your Bougainvillea is inspiring.
Took a couple of pictures today but the sun was bright. Will try to get better shots tomorrow AM. Marcia, I need to borrow your camera. :-)
