The fact that we had so much rain and
(after that and in between)
makes a bit of a jungle of the garden.
Not that I don't like that,
but it means I should DO something about it.
Or otherwise I won't be able to walk trough
my tiny one-stone-paths.
LOTS and LOTS of withered Alium Roseum
needed to come out.
A gentle tug on the stem easily does the trick
but sometimes the little bulb is pulled out too ...
I just cut the stem off and let them dry inside.
And you know what :
I know at least two people who will be happy to recieve them
(Stins .... Yvette ...)
But I also have
the cut off dried flower heads
with minuscule bulbs
(I'm thinking of just throwing them around in public garden space)
... and it will look like this in a few years time !
