Looks like it is an allium year this year. Their flowers are everywhere in the garden.FOTD 10th June 2021: Allium
Great Minds think alike, but my allium decided to open its flowers today. It has a long way to go, but this is just the beginning.FOTD 31st May 2021: Allium
It seems that allium is another name for members of the onion and garlic family. How this one got into my garden I have no idea. It first appeared two years ago and arrived again this year. Apparently they grow when they feel like it. Although I cook with oinion and garlic (some times a little too much garlic perhaps) I do not plant it in the garden. I think this one is a wild garlic. It spent the best part of the month growing on a very very long stalk and yesterday the bud burst open to produce it many flowers. I will keep an eye on it and see how it develops.FOTD 29th May 2021: Allium
Something is happening here. I think the first allium bud is planning to open.FOTD 14th May 2021:Allium

Flower of the stars
Something I do not often see.
I wish mine looked as good as this one does.
I had one in the garden, but this year it did not appear so I had to make do with the one in the flower store.
