What a beautiful ball of colour Ann. A great Allium . Do you know the variety .

By the way. These early crocus I grow only come out in Feb/March. It has been so warm for a week here in the afternoons and the Bees are so busy. I have to go & get my heart monitored next Friday. Hope all goes well for you xx
