  1. I want to say it's a plant but surely those pencil like top bits are flowers, or are they? So pretty!

    1. I thought exactly the same thing Fiona, I've been busy painting and doing art all weekend and I was beginning to think I'd over done it by seeing pencils! It's good to know it's not just me :D

    1. I thought so too Hannah. I saw it and just had to grab my camera. I now have the head with all the seeds drying out...ready to plant more for next year. I'll look forward to seeing you on Instagram.
      Have fun :D

    1. Thanks Tim, I've been amazed by some photo close-ups, of just how intricate nature can be. That's the beauty of taking photos, I suppose... it really makes you look more closely at things.
      Have a great Sunday

  4. So beautiful, is it going to flower like that all over? I don't think I've ever seen one like that before!

    1. Yes it will burst into flower like a firework and even then it will still be attractive when it goes to seed. I've collected quite a few to hopefully replant for next year.

    1. It is very like a dandelion isn't it Adam.
      Even more so when it turns to seed.

    1. It is rather spikey...a little like a thistle only much larger and rounder. It's great when it opens into full flower but also stunning when it's goes to seed.
      Thanks for hosting once again.

  11. Hey that's amazing - I must have missed it on Instagram. I wanted to say it was like the agapathus on your header, but now I'm convinced it's the spectaculum pencilis flower!! Do fill us in! Wren x

    1. Hehe...I thought exactly the same thing Wren! Pencils :D
      Are you ready for this...
      Allium is a genus of monocotyledonous flowering plants that includes hundreds of species, including the cultivated onion, garlic, scallion, shallot, leek, and chives
      Well you asked for it! x

  12. this is so pretty, I wonder how difficult it would be to paint? I think one would need to use a lightbox to get accuracy of the points first!

    1. Okay I'm willing to let you go ahead and paint it...let me know how difficult it is before I commit to anything.
      I think it's way above my ability!
      It is pretty though isn't it and do the spikes remind you of pencils too?

    1. I saw this one outside of my Medical Practice and asked permission to shoot and snip it Jennifer. Mine in my garden didn't seem to last long either...but maybe the seeds from this one will fair better for me next year. We shall have to wait and see :D

    1. I love it Irene and was even thinking about having a large print blown up to put on my wall.
      Hopefully the seeds I collected will germinate next summer for me to have lots more!
