Last year, I posted pictures of the alliums in the front perennial bed, and I’m happy to have them back again this year.

With the wet and nasty June we’ve been having, they are leaning down a bit, but are as round and purple as one could wish.  I bought them some bling to keep them company — the green globe in the background above is part of set of three blown glass, solar powered garden lights that I snapped up at Costco.

Globular theme

Here they are hanging out with the euphorbia and vigorously self-sowing hardy geranium — not only are the globes multicolored, but the lights themselves change colors every few seconds, making for a delighful garden accent in the dark of night.
