For this post, I'm sharing some close-ups of individual plants, beginning with several stages of an allium. I think I have two types planted, Allium 'Gigantium' and Allium 'Globemaster,' although I'm not certain which is which.
|Here you can see the globes beginning to open in the front, and in their glory in the back.|
|Opening a little more|
|This is an in-between stage. There must be about a hundred little starry flowers on each globe.|
|I still find them fascinating when they go to seed.|
|A closer look.|
|Here they are in both stages, with yarrow, roses, and catmint.|
This is a spiderwort that seeded itself. I think it's pretty cool... white, violet center, and stunning purple stems for each flower. It's a droopy, messy plant, but those stems are worth it!
