Wow, this forum is quiet today! Here are the first blooms of the season at the garden where I volunteer, with the first pic being taken last fall, then the next two the same first bloom in shade, and then later in the sun last week, and the last two this week. The mini Wild Plum:

I keep messing up my post and having to re-edit since this is from my ph., but here is the bud pic from this week that I accidentally edited out:

Here's one that shows the delicate shading when the bud is opening which is probably where it got its name Wild Plum from:

Also, this is one of the bushes that was most affected by the Round-up drift last year. Happily, it recovered for a great fall bloom, and looks normal as it is starting to bloom again.

(Hopefully this re-edit works!)

Mike, it's a type of jasmine vine, ever-green and the flowers are fragrant.

I don't know about anyone else but I have been hanging out on the COVID-19 thread in the Sandbox forum. It's informative, helpful, and is part of the NGA community so it is full of fellow gardeners.

I'll have to take a look, but I feel as if I am already drowning in COVID-19 information.

I've been self quarantined for 2 months already, what virus? Anymore COVID will send me over the edge, I'm afraid. That's why I'm here.
Lovely flowers, I have Golden Celebration.
I try to grow everything, sometime not successful.

I just self imposed myself into quarantine here too. My town is a tourist destination so it can easily become infected by unsuspecting visitors. It is a matter of a few days or weeks when first cases will be reported. Keeping away from crowds reduces the risk of contagion. Fortunately I live far enough out in the middle of nowhere, to be exposed. Still, I'm following strict preventive measures, when I'm in contact with other people. I'm greatly pleased that I find so much pleasure in my garden and roses. That is a very safe place for a COVID19 pandemic. Argentina, just like the US has closed all air traffic from Europe, Asia, including the US and Canada. Unfortunately I believe that governments all over the world were a bit late in deciding how to react so most of them are really unprepared. In that sense I'm pessimistic of the outcome. Just like @Porkpal, it is very easy to be drowned with information, however any precaution is better than getting the virus and having to handle it! So if each of us keep busy with their respective yards then perhaps most of us here at the RF will be able to withstand the wave of the pandemic. I pray for that to happen wherever one may be living.

My quarantine is self-imposed also. I just don't want to get sick before my long European trip and that is now cancelled too. That's what makes this whole virus thing sad. I've been looking forward to this long trip for a long time. I recently bought tickets to see Alhambra in Spain, not the money part, but I want to see this place. At least my money for the Amsterdam part is refunded.
I'm always optimistic and think we will conquer this. But I have nephew and nieces who are doctors, ER and pulmonary, they are in the front line, I hope they don't get infected by this virus. At least right now, my garden is my sanctuary, so glad I got the exterior painted before this rain. So lucky.

Anyway, it stopped raining today, maybe a brief prelude before we have more. The roses love the rain, but some of the rose flowers are drenched in water, ie droopy.

Carol, it's amazing you are SO cold!!! SCGN, thank you for those pictures. "Raindrops on roses" has such a different emotional feel for me now that I actually grow them. Pretty! Pretty!

For SoCal, who can't visit the Alhambra this year. Enclosed are some photos taken in 2016. In my opinion, the structure of the building is not particularly noteworthy. But the wall and ceiling treatments are spectacular.
