This daylily actually produced the first bloom April 30th, but it couldn't open fully because of the cool, damp weather. This one is a little better, caught it just before the heavy rain started. Perhaps next week we will have a couple of days of sunshine, and it will be shown to much better advantage.

Both of the above have very stiff thick substance and had not fully opened when I took the photos, wish they would open earlier.
'Shamrock Dew': Just a beautiful bloom to me.
Thumb of 2021-05-03/Seedfork/b3871e
'William My Angel': I think the appliques look better to me when the tepals are a darker color I can imagine this with darker tepals.
