I have a few flowers on a few of my balsam camellia plants and one of my glads is ready to bloom.
The only problem I have right now is I have a total infestation of leafhoppers. There are certain plants they leave alone but they LOVE flowers (they've eaten three of my pumpkin flowers and are working on the balsam camellia now). Now that I've finally ID'd what they are (at first I thought they were slugs/snails and then aphids) I can hopefully figure out how to get rid of them. Unfortunately I haven't seen any beneficial bugs in the garden which is probably why there is such a big infestation.
I can't wait until I have more flowers blooming (and when I can see what of the mass of green in the flower bed is flower and what is weed!).
