And shame on me that I didn't cut the scape off this one, and allow the energy to be spent on recovery. But look at it.

I don't see funky blooms, Fred, but I do see some gorgeous
patterns.

Stan, love those reds, especially Apache Beacon, and
also the very dark June Williams Memorial.

I have been gone a few days, had to take the wife to the Doc and then stop back on the way home and attend my granddaughter's college graduation, stayed a few days at my daughters lake house and now am back home.
I was not able to get photos till late, it rained earlier in the day, etc. etc., yes I am making excuses but the plants deserve more credit than these photos will show.
Some of these are first blooms of the season, some are repeats and some are just to show how the blooms are picking up now with the warmer weather and some rain finally.
