Great photo. We used to have aliums in our garden growing up, and I always like their spherical quality :)

I love flowers, like this one, that actually are clusters of tiny flowers. It's beautiful.

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!

Le Butterfly said...

Brilliant colour.

Maya said...

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

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! :-)
