alien abduction!

I promise to post pix of the new veggie beds soon. In the meantime, I dropped by Farmer’s Daughter recently in search of the missing pieces to my garden puzzle when I was suddenly stopped in my tracks by this completely alien looking plant…

sputnik flowers!

Holy moly! Here they are from another angle…

Sputnik flowers rising above a bed of Sedum Angelina! Spacetacular, aren’t they? Did a little research and figured out these are Allium Schubertii, an ornamental onion. Completely bizarre. And drought tolerant, no less! But wait, you really need a better idea of scale…

Allium Schubertii

Can you believe the size of that thing?! I must have it. Yes, I will have it.
