Morning folks 😀👋🏼, been away for a few days but back now. Lots of good and some bad things going on in the garden. 'Bad' -slugs/snails are on the rampage with this wet weather. 'Good' - these Alliums are now fully open. I know it doesn't look it, but it's normal for this species. Love the deep purple colouring 💜

I liked the look of the unusual flower heads on this Allium - it's more like a half sphere facing upwards rather than a complete sphere. Deep purple colouring with blueberry centres 🤓. Planted 15th December.
