Odd isn’t it? Wilko must specialise in mutant alliums, I’ve had a swan and an ostrich so far! 😂 @kez001uk

The best part of returning home after a weeks holiday….seeing what’s been happening in the garden in my absence. These #alliumpurplesensation are wonderful 💜💜 #allium #colourpop

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
