Here it is the 7th of April already and I did not see a new April 2020 Blooms thread started yet? Hope I did not over look it.
I just had to post my first bloom ever on 'Lana Lindsay':

'Whooperee' I had two pots blooming in my new circular bed today:

'Whale Tails' bloomed yesterday, but the blooms never opened fully, today it did.

'Lickety Split': I waited all season last year for this to bloom, and finally it bloomed today.

Darn: I have tried three times now to post this photo, must not have had my coffee this morning:
'Royal Eventide': A single that looks more like a double most of the time.

Took photos today of the new blooms, I must say I was blown away by how bright 'Lava Flow' actually was down in the garden. I don't think I have any other plant that makes such a loud statement, you just can't overlook it! The camera just could not come close to capturing the true look of the bloom, so much prettier in the garden.

Even though 'Buddy's Abilene' is also very bright and stands out, it could not outdo 'Lava Flow'. Once again the camera just could not seem to get the colors correct. I think I tried every setting on it trying to get the orange tint of the base color not to look so yellow, but the camera just insisted the bloom look yellow.

'Debbie Durio' was blooming in two pots down in the circular bed this morning.

'Shamrock Dew' looked great with such a large bloom.

I had the first bloom on 'Filled With Joy' this morning.

Lava Flow does make a statement! And it's usually one of my first bloomers. We'll see if that holds true this year.

First flower to bloom honors goes to Stella's Sparky, which arrived in our garden last fall courtesy of our very own Hazelcrest Mike. Actually, this is not the first bloom, I missed it completely a few days ago, but happy to have one small scape with several buds left--and I love this small flower, what a neat color it is.
