I particularly like leek flowers.
I think they are beautiful, architectural,
unlike most commercially grown cut flowers
I once gave them to fellow staff members as a thank you
for their extra work on a performance.
Everyone was taken by their unusual shape
nobody guessed what they were.
Some of the impressedness was lost (hows that for a word?)
when I told them the truth.
Red French Shallot flowers are even better.
They are white white white.
Like a firework
Very similar to the leek but crisp in their whiteness, no pink tinge.
I never know whether to save the seeds or sell the flowers.
$2.00 a bloom.
The seeds saved would be way more than a packet of seeds.
This bee didn't even wait for the flower to hatch!
Gladys coming on, they are not liking our heat wave.
38 degrees C today and 43degrees C predicted for Thursday
These dahlias were bought as seedlings.
I couldn't resist and have been rewarded with colour.
I wonder if they will form corms or tubers for next year.
I'm inside avoiding the heat,
Clearly avoiding house work by playing on the computer.
