Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Typeless Tuesday - Allium Seed Heads in My Garden

 
This was going to be a Wordless Wednesday post but I got busy yesterday and didn't get anything else done for today so Typeless Tuesday it is!  These allium seed heads looked especially lovely one morning.

 
And this "Seed Pod" is a new addition to my garden by Judi Hook. 

 See previous posts about Judi's work here.

  5. It's getting to be that time of the year when you're heading back to work isn't it? This summer when so so so fast! Hope you're spending as much time enjoying your garden as possible (not inside writing blog posts).

    1. Silly Loree, summer doesn't end until September 21st but you're right, it's sure going fast. What I got busy with yesterday was working in my classroom. I spent extra time and now it's almost ready for the kiddos on Sept. 3.

  6. I'm addicted to Alliums and positively adore their seedheads :-)

    1. Aren't they great? I like the seedheads almost more than the flowers. They certainly last longer.

  7. These look like props from 'Frozen'...and I mean that in the very best way.

    1. I've been meaning to see 'Frozen' but now have added incentive!

  8. What size are the sculptural ones? They look quite substantial (and very nice)!

    1. The one in this post is about 15" but the larger one in a previous post was nearly 3'. I enjoy seeing them.

    1. Easy as pie, just order the real ones from one of the bulb catalogs that have been arriving in your mail box. (Van Engelen is a good one and they have an online catalog.) The artsy one would require a call to Judi Hook (253) 847 - 2937.

  11. There can't be too many alliums in the garden! They look lovely even when they lost their blue/white/purple color.

  12. Very beautiful! Your photos of the real alliums are stunning. And the artsy alliums are awesome too.
