Alliums

It is a sure sign that summer is on its way when these beautiful flowers finally put on their best display. They stand up bravely against the wind and rain (and footballs!) that seem determined to knock them down.

    1. Thanks, I love these flowers. Unfortunately someone will invariably knock or kick (accidentally of course!) them over though, so glad to get pic of them before that happened!! Hope yours turned out ok so we get to see them too 🙂

  1. I love that you note how the footballs know them down (and so
    glad you were able to get photo before they were knocked over)- they are stunning. I also have a shot of a broken pot from a basketball slamming it – and well, my front garden is sports adapted, ha!

    1. Looks like it will be the rain that gets them this year, they are just hanging on. Got my picture just in time!! “Sports adapted” I like that!! 😉
