You didn’t think a 2016 recap from this guy wouldn’t include flower pictures, did you?
#1 – Doubled Daffodil. This is my absolute favorite picture from my flower garden year.
#2 – Peach Iris – I added Iris bulbs to my garden last fall, and this was my favorite by far.
#3 – Peonies – I stopped by the Peony gardens at the Nichols Arboretum. Their collection is astounding.
#4 – Dahlia – I tried my hand (and was moderately unsuccessful) at growing Dinnerplate Dahlias. I did manage to get this really good shot when I was clearing out the garden for winter.
#5 – Aladdin’s Carpet – I got this really fantastic mix of wild tulips and baby daffodils and hyacinths and stuff.
Bonus #1 – My friend Kate made this rainbow flower collage and sent it to me after the Pulse Nightclub Tragedy. It has warmed my heart all year.

Bonus #2 – I had too much fun making flower mandalas with Structure. Here’s one from flowers at Greenfield Village.
