Camelia..Are they supposed to bloom now?

I'm in East Texas, where we have had a very warm Winter so far. My daughter has a Camelia (I hope I spelled it right) in front of the house she's renting, and it is in full bloom. Is this the time of year it should bloom, or has it been fooled into thinking it's Spring? It's so pretty and adds lots of color to the drab Winter landscape:)

It's blooming time all across the south! They are blooming in North Georgia too. In a few days the daffodils will be blooming too!

The strange thing here in SC is that the fall-blooming Camellia sasanquas didn't bloom in the fall when they were supposed to because it was so dry. They're blooming now with the reticulatas and japonicas. In a normal winter, the japonicas would send out a flush of bloom which would last a week or 2 before getting hit by a freeze. And then another flush and so on all winter. This winter, we're not having any killing frosts and all the bushes are a riot of color and all together. Got to get some pics. Gary
