My new favourite bulb is this Allium – I haven’t grown the big ones before and I am so glad I did.

Allium-christophii

I grouped the packet of 8 together (a tad too tightly) and they catch my eye every time I walk past the window.

They have managed to distract my eye from the Rosebay willowherb which has taken root behind – I only realised how much of it there was when I took the photographs!

An urgent case of weeding is required methinks.

PS  No photo of a bloom in my vase this week – I haven’t been able to bring myself to make the chop.
