We have planted hundreds of allium bulbs here during the 7 years we have been gardening in Plealey. We have planted about seven hundred in our newest beds, the two Secret Gardens. Obviously they look wonderful when in flower and when the seed heads dry to pale biscuit colours but I have been finding the magical circles of seed heads all over the garden in the last few days as they migrate in the wind. Just like tumbleweed.
This one has rolled around gathering up the fallen leaves of autumn.
This one has found a dark place to hide.
And this one has snuggled up to the softly felted leaves of a foxglove.
While this one found a little playmate.
This one has taste – it settled beneath a Hydrangea querquifolia.
This one ended its journey hiding behind a chair in the Chicken Garden.
I must keep an eye on them and see where they go next!!
