I'm not sure what it is about this year, but I'm thinking it's the late summer rain. Whatever it is, the Liriope (Monkey grass) is loving it.

Liriope is all over town, gracing the shady spots under trees, flowerbed edges and garden problem spots. And this year it is all covered in purple blooms. I have never seen it bloom so profusely before. Even the small starts that we recently planted at my parents-in-laws wedding chapel are blooming - and some of them are just inches tall!
