Whats blooming in the garden?

We are having unusual weather in southern California these days.  It is not feeling like winter at all.  I am not complaining about the weather at all.  I am quite enjoying this weather which means we can use the outdoors.  We are having what you call a sweater weather. 

My garden both in the front yard and backyard, I have quite a collection of succulents in the containers.    I noticed some of them were blooming.

 I have had some of these for 3-4 years now and I have never seen them bloom,  I am very happy to see the blooms but it also worries me , I will get to that later.

The one below you see I have had for 6 years.  As per my husband its the most neglected plant but I say its the most drought resistant plant.   Haha...............................

Its such a pretty color on the bloom

My Japanese magnolia in front yard is blooming too.  It is a month early.  I wish you could smell them through the picture.   They smell divine.

I have a few in the backyard as well.  Some are in bloom and some are getting ready.   

I hope you are having a wonderful week.
