First blooms of the season

I got my first blooms of the season today. That's a whopping 3 days earlier than last year. The big one is Bela Lugosi and I believe the other is Little Grapette.

Edited to use smaller images so they actually display...

Bela is such a great purple, and you captured the color beautifully.

Vivid photos. The gravel may help keep your leaves perfect.

Great color on Bela Lugosi! Mine rarely looks that dark unless we have a cool night.

I agree on the color of Bela. I've never seen gravel used as top dressing for plants. I like it. Thanks for sharing.
