Smaller by mistake

Not every flower in our garden is bigger than last year. While the snowdrop anemone, columbine, and iris quadrupled in size this spring, our candytuft is about half the size it was in 2013.

This one is my fault. At the very beginning of spring, I got a tad overzealous in trimming away the foliage that I thought was dead. When it was too late, I realized my mistake. See the difference from 2013 to 2014:
