You know those picture games where they show you one image, then a second and ask you to find the ten differences between the two? Or the Sesame Street "one of these things" game? (You know: "♫ one of these things is not like the others, ♫ which one is different, do you know?... ♫ ")
I've got something like that for you today. I'll show you a series of photos, and you try and spot which one is different. Ready?
For reference, these are photos of my alliums, planted in my new spring bulb beds (which will soon become annual beds). They're pretty much past their peak, starting to form seeds, but still interesting I think.
Did you spot the one that was different?
It appears that one of the Allium bulbs was a different type and bloomed white! Doesn't really bother me, as I'm just happy to have blooms here at all, and purple and white work well together.
These little beetles (feel free to browse around bugguide.net to ID them for me -- I'm not in the mood right now) sure do love the flowers!
I like surprises in the garden, don't you?
