Alliums are popping open! The Golden Globes ceremony is now beginning and wow what stars. Literally. Peering in more closely you will see tiny, star-like flowers neatly fitting into a perfect spherical globe.
On the velvet carpet the vigorous, five foot tall ‘Gladiator’ strides by with ‘Giganteum’ whose flower is bigger but whose height shorter. ‘Purple Sensation’ was given an Award of Garden Merit while ‘Mt. Everest’ and ‘Star of Persia’ watched by patiently.
These purple, pink and white architectural creatures will soon stand out in the garden like sentries. Like sentries they should keep the deer at bay. How far? I don’t know.
