Morning 🙂 Not long now….I’ve made the assumption it’s Purple Sensation by its location, but it’s looking more pink? 🤷‍♀️ #allium-purple-sensation #allium #ajmay

I can’t tell you how excited I was to get home. After having driven for over four hours Jane, my first priority was to get into the garden 👀 🌸 🌿 even though I was gasping for a cup of tea! ☕️ 🫖 The addiction of gardening 😆 💕 @pelly
