Floral Fireworks

This week I was prepared for the CSA pickup with both my big pannier and my "extra"  pannier  so I didn't have to use the plastic bag trick.

No photos of the mostly green cargo back,  but I had to stop for this amazing display of ornamental Allium.

I'm not normally a fan of the "pink"  heuchera,  but they worked well as a base for the explosion of blooms

I didn't realize that Allium came in so many amazing textures- I'm just familiar with the "purple puffball" type.

So perfectly round!  I've got to plant these next year!


  1. Such pretty onions, and I bet the pollinators love them!

  2. They are like baubles of bubbles - only purple!!
