    Normally blueberries begin to bloom around or after mid December here in Texas zone 8B. Last year the first crop of the season turned blue only in late April. However, Unusual warm winter this year in Texas zone 8B propelled many of my blueberry blooming back in late October-early November, and here is the new crop started turning blue in first week of March. There is something more interesting happening this year is many of my blueberry plants that bloomed back in October-November had other branches that started breaking buds again in early February and continuously blooming until now and this seems scattered blooming-ripening pattern.

    I can't see your third picture, but your first two look similar to what is happening here - all stages from flower to ripe fruit, though you appear to have more ripe ones than I do.

    I'm hoping this means a very looooooooooooong eating season.
