Whether from all of the rain this spring of from or simply being a year older, many of our flowers are significantly bigger than last year. Quadrupled in size since 2013, in some cases.
Snowdrop anemone: 2013 vs. 2014. This plant has a new location this year.
Columbine: 2013 vs. 2014. The garden in the background has expanded, but this plant is in the same location as last year.
Iris: 2013 vs. 2014. This is the biggest of four iris clumps. We didn’t divide them at the end of last summer, like we have in previous years.
