Garden journal entry

 

June 03, 2012. Young love. The nodding buds of Allium senescens ssp. montanum var. glaucum (what a mouthful!) are delightful to watch up close; I like the way the stems are sculpted, as if they were extruded from a fanciful playdough pasta maker die, as well as the perfect curves with which they bend around to hang their clusters of tightly shut flowerbuds, still wrapped in translucent membranes, as they prepare to display their pink insides. By then, the flowers will have turned upright to show themselves to the world. The little fly atop this love scene can hardly wait...
