“Strange brilliant flowers, star-shaped, burst out upon trees where no flowers had been before.” (Edgar Allan Poe ~ Eleonora)
I grew allium for the first time last year in my garden - I bought it thinking it was one of the large varieties that would practically tower over me (yeah, I know, not a difficult task) but it turned out to be a rather miniature version. Still, I like it. Most especially if there happens to be a Paper Kite attached! Meantime, still perusing all the photos from my visit to the Botanical Gardens yesterday, so, undoubtedly, more butterflies to come. I know, try to contain your excitement.
