The essence of summer for me is the lushness of flowers and the colour combination of the various flowering plants we have in our garden. I cannot get enough of them.
This Allium has a nice silvery shine on its petals that are curling a little in the middle. The mauve contrasts nicely with the green of its stems and the small white flowers of the Heuchera ‘Lime Marmelade’. If you look closely, you will see a bee trying to get some honey at the lower part of the flower.
