Allium bulgaricum – a painting a day

 a detail from this painting is framed and for sale

size 4 in x 6 in 12cm x 15cm watercolour on heavy weight rag paper

Today I picked one and a half pounds of strawberries.

I planted out about twelve late things: tender fuchsias and dahlias. Found a Canna lily that has overwintered in the ground!!

I painted this unusual Allium which is sometimes known as the other name in the tags. I think the other name means garlic with nectar or it would in Greek not sure what they called garlic in Latin. It’s quite tricky as it’s so floppy(hard to get an angle on it). I’ve seen it standing tall in other gardens but mine is coy and retiring.

Seventieth painting today! I think I shall give myself a treat when I get to one hundred.
