Alliums Love The Rain
The Alliums are making an appearance now that we have had some rain. They love water. Their leaves collect it to save for later. This one has grown a lot since this morning. Bulbs are wonderful that way. I find my excitement building. We put in some new bulbs last year. They are just getting started and have some serious growing to do.
When you plant bulbs with a name like A. gigantium it's hard for a gardener to contain their enthusiasm, but then why should they?
