Pick One

The Allium Millenium in front of our house is a wonderful little plant we picked up from the local… what do you call it, plant shop? Nursery! That’s the word. The plant is a deep green, thin bladed grass looking plant with rounded leaves and taller stalks that explode in a purple firework blossom. That’s the time we usually see the Common Buckeye. In and amongst the other pollinators like the carpenter, bumble, and honey bees, the buckeye adds a splash of orange and brown to our garden’s palette. They seem to flirt with the flowers using their winged fluttering eyes forever favoring a fragrant forest of free food …  and we’ve been shut down by the alliteration police. See you next week same #wildbackyard time, same #wildbackyard channel.
