Above, the buds are emerging from the ground in the same hole as their dead leaves did last spring.
There should be 3 to 4 times as many flowers as I see this year, because there were that many leaves a few months ago. Perhaps this summer was too hot for the bulbs. I understood these bulbs can take full sun, but apparently, I was mistaken.
