Chris in Happy Valley said...

Allium is one of my favorite spring flowers. Gorgeous.

The strange thing, or one of them, that I'm discovering about Oz is that a lot of the "spring" flowers come up in Autumn.

Anyhoo, happy WW!

Simone said...

Brilliant colour.

Maya said...

The color is so lively.
Beautifully framed.
Happy WW.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

Jim said...

Jams, one more please! I tried last night and my other computer bombed while it was trying to get your blog up. For a while it was faster with your new template, but it is almost as slow as the WW site.

My comment last night would have been that I was wondering if when that blossom dries, can it be blown into the winds like a dandelion?

Happy WW! :-)
