Bud Burst Contd


A few posts back I shared these images of the alliums in my garden on the cusp of bursting their buds. There should have been a whole series of audible pops when they finally did their thing, releasing seemingly impossible numbers of tiny purple ‘flames’, destined to open up to form hemispheres of stars. In truth, it’s difficult to stop photographing them so apologies in advance!


This is a different variety of allium, a ‘globemaster’ I think, but looks like a dragon egg from Game of Thrones.
Taken this afternoon, Allium jesdianum (note unfolding stars) plus some impressionist smudges of Geranium phaeum ‘Samobor’.
