I am so happy to have this blog to be able to share pictures of what grows in my own garden as well as stories and images from the gardens I look after or design. Plants are an inspiration for me in many ways and on this occasion the Allium from my sister helped to create this image. I can’t quite believe that it managed to withstand the windy conditions of Skye being such a tall plant and with not much protection. It does grow in a container though so I was able to move it behind some small shrubs to protect it a bit a few times, but I just think it’s an amazingly strong and tough plant and that’s why it survived and I can now enjoy it. I am growing more alliums next year!
