Every year so far, Amy! I sometimes think I should have planted them closer to the tree line. The clump has doubled in size. It's so great to have them to look forward to every spring...

Wonderful to see the Englush Blue Belks there the I learned some thing the other day about the dandelion its the early plant to feed the bees and critters.

yes, and people too, 3d. the leaves (when blanched or very young add zing to a salad, the flowers when picked make an interesting wine, and the root dried and roasted makes a tasty and nutritious tea. Our dog, Mandy, used to eat the ones I pulled from the lawn. She lay with the root between her paws... and ate it like Bugs Bunny with a carrot!

You've probably more English Bluebells in that clump than here in the U.K. now, which has been overrun by the rampant Spanish ones.
