Last fall, I planted three allium bulbs. These are relatives of chives and onions, and are not grown for food but put out honking big flower heads. This spring, the leaves emerged, got a bit slug-nibbled, but persevered. The flower stalk poked up, topping out at about three feet tall. Then, the buds started to break open . . .
a bit more . . .
The final result, a perfectly round cluster of tiny flowers, about five inches across. I need more of these!
Also in bloom, Euphorbia “Fireglow”. Yes, it really is pretty close to that color!
