I took this photo last week-end before the Chinook blew through - it is ornamental allium 'Purple Sensation' seedheads in my Adventure Garden. One of my all-time favourite plants and the kids love them too. If you don't have any, put them on your bulb list for next fall. Here are some pictures of them in their full purple glory in spring.
If, at this time of year, you're thinking that maybe you should have a few more plants in your garden that stay standing and looking good throughout the winter, go to my 'Winter Interest' category and scroll down for ideas... and start planning for next year!
