Barely Visible!

I really do love the Allium family.  This is one of my favorites, but you couldn't tell because it is barely visible!  I got these alliums 'Purple Sensation' from the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in Sagertites, NY.  It will be held on September 25 and 26 this year.  It was a really fun experience.  Note to self.  Move these when they finish blooming!  They are blooming despite the shade!  Hope you had a good day wherever you may be.  Talk to you later!

Love allium as well! I always look forward to this purple puff ball! Still waiting for mine to bloom here in MA. Thanks for the birthday wishes ;) Alyssa

I love the allium but my goodness that hosta is beautiful. They do not grow here. The snails and slugs devour them overnight.

The snails and slugs don't bother it. That hosta is deer proof as well, TG! It is Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans'. It is beautiful in the summer. I'll try to remember to take a photo when it is in bloom.
