The gift that keeps on giving

Allium blooming on slope. May 13, 2020.

One of my favorite aspects of spring is being surprised by what pokes through the soil. Years ago, my mother-in-law gifted me some allium and I’d forgotten all about it, possibly because it didn’t come up last year.

This year, though, I’m blessed with these lovely and intricate orbs. Bees love them, I love them.

    • Hello! You know, it occurred to me that maybe the allium DID bloom last year and I missed it. Because I just did quick research and couldn’t find anything about them skipping a year. I was probably just unobservant! HA.

      Wishing you a lovely weekend!

      • well we also can easily overlook what is right next to us – because the working memory functions with the seven (plus or miss two) items that it has in there and much of the rest we disregard unless it is out of the ordinary
        so you could be right–
        however, just a theory. but I know some bulbs do need a dormant period – and maybe there was cold or something ?
