Flower Bed Pic

Since I went out to take pics of the garden for a post over at my garden blog, I took a pic of the plants at the back of the house from the same perspective for a third time now, I think.  The irises are healthy and there will be purple puffballs over on the right.  Kate's flamingo is flapping among the irises.

It was good to see you guys last weekend! You convinced me to give it up and finally comment so here it is.

The purple puffballs are alium. One of my favorites! I love how when the purple is gone they turn into fireworks skeletons. We planted some in the fall and I can't wait till they come up.

Hi Bridget, nice to hear from you!Thanks, we've been calling them purple puffballs so long now it may be hard to remember the proper name, a-l-i-u-m. There were only 2 or 3 when we moved in, but over the last few years as they went to seed we shook them out over the whole area and now there are lots.
