illums are the best I love 'purple sensation' it's diffentaely the best ever. I shall always have them in my garden and I always keep the seed heads and fill my posh Belleek wedding present vases with them :)
I am a California gardener too, and was visiting Galloping Gardener's blog when he mentioned you. I came over to say hi, and am following you now.
I bet children could always design really nice gardens. You'd get the most whimsical, interesting plants without any over-analysis that an adult would probably have about it!
Carrie, sweet Carrie,I can picture your posh Belleek vases with bunches of allium seed heads!This is a bulb I've had not luck growing, by the way :-(Terra,Welcome! Wendy,I wish I'd had more opportunity to learn about the children's experiences with this garden. I can surely picture them digging about, planting and laughing with joy!
