More First-Timer Blooms in my Garden

These were planted last summer and I am just seeing their blooms for the first time. You can click on the picture to enlarge it. There's nothing like the first days of a new love to make your heart go pitter-patter. Above is Highland Lord.
Below is Without a Doubt.  I did have an earlier photo, but the bloom wasn't not up to par and the photo was not too spectacular.

Usually the first bloom of the year on a daylily is not the best.  They seem to get a little bigger and more colorful as their bloom time goes on.  I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings for Primal Scream.  It about knocked me out this morning.  Again the sun washed some of the color out.  I'll try again when it is overcast.

 I planted Primal Scream next to a red bee balm without thinking.  What do you think?  Should I move the bee balm? I don't think I like it, and it doesn't do either one justice.

I really like both plants, but I don't think I like them next to each other. They seem to detract from each other. I think they'd be more outstanding separated. Beautiful day lilies.

Thanks for your opinion, Kay. I think I'll move the daylily this fall.

Lovely, but without a doubt, Without a Doubt is my favorite!
