At First...


At first there was one.  Now there are two!  I knew that allium bulbs could, with time, begin to produce more than one flower per year, I just didn't know when that would be.  I don't know if I can emphasize enough how much I enjoy this plant.  It was probably my best $10 purchase ever!

I love it when spring starts to come and all the plants start blooming! I LOVE your banner by the way. So pretty!

I was given seven from a friend's garden last year and I can hardly wait till they come up and bloom. Can't see the gardens today for the snow! Hope it melts soon and we get more spring like weather!

Oooh fun! I've been meaning to plant allium for years, but somehow, I always forget when the time is right. Can't wait to see the blooms!

Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad we found each other ;)

I love allium as well, but my thumb isn't very green and sadly, bugs got to the bulbs only after a few years. Good luck with yours :)

Have a good one.

These are beautiful! We're planting bulbs in pots this year. Need to check into when the best time is to plant allium.

And i so need to say "I'll have to think about it" more often. I hate feeling so busy all the time.

I have always wanted to plant allium in my garden, but I never seem to get around to it. I always kick myself when they start blooming in my friend's garden. Nothing worse than allium envy!
