Allium

A picture from one of our front gardens. I love Alliums because they are so gorgeous and also because they spread their seeds all over so that now we have hundreds of them. That is my kinds of plant, anything that earns its keep like that is welcome in my garden. I have little regard for annuals.

Now if I can only learn to embroider them as easily as I grow them.....

I love these flowers too! Is this what you'll be embroidering on the skirt you're making?????

Very nice!! I have one that you gave me a while back and it is starting to spread some seeds. This is a very good thing!

Let's not talk about the skirt - my machine that I was using doesn't have a buttonhole thingie and I just thought I could do one sorta "free-style", maybe I will bring it today so you can have a good laugh.

oh my. oh my. can't decide which i love more, the embroidery or the real thing. i have 2 aliums (have ALWAYS loved them) and they don't spread. WHY???

I like plants that earn their keep too. I love the embroidery, I think you did a jimmy-dandy job.
