Weekly Photo Challenge: Change/ Macro Monday

One of my favourite flowers now is the Purple Allium.   It is so beautiful and makes for great photos. Each stage is very photogenic in itself. As I was doing  MACRO MONDAY  it  seemed to be a perfect way to share this flowers development as part of the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHANGE.

The first time I  really saw this plant was at a friends house. She had a garden full of them. I went for a visit to take some photos of some of her beautiful plants at their best. The problem that I had was that because there was so many, it was hard to separate them to take photos.  Now I have my own, so hopefully this year they will give me something to enjoy!

 THE FLOWERS HAVE FINISHED LEAVING THE SEEDS IN THE PODS NOT MATURED. WHEN THEY DO THEY WILL TURN BLACK. I LEAVE THEM ON A TIN FOIL PLATE AND LET THEM DROP NATURALLY.

THE PLANT COMES IN SEVERAL COLOURS INCLUDING A MUCH DEEPER PURPLE THAN THIS. I BOUGHT THEM AS BLUBS SO I DON’T KNOW WHETHER THE SEEDS WILL GROW FOR ME.

THANKS FOR COMING BY…..
