This pink allium came into bloom this week.
I have no idea where it came from!
Could it be Allium roseum?
cheers

This was an unnamed allium I got from Hillview Rare Plants as an extra.
Any ideas what it could be?

Hi Oron,
sorry, when I went to look at the foliage it appears to have withered away already.
I don't remember it being remarkable in any way. I'll try to get a pic next year!

Allium senecens - at least I think that's what it is - flowering with the light behind it

Hi Carole,
if you mean the fires, we are yet to be "impacted" but we are in a high fire risk area - it's why I dread the summer  :(
If you are meaning our political situation this article sums it up!

Meant the fire situation Fermi - afraid politics aren't for me!
Glad you are not badly affected at the moment but can understand the yearly worry you must suffer as the temperatures rise and the sadness as you hear about this year's catastrophic situation in so many areas.
