corner, release, allium

In the corner of a farmyard.

After a month of enforced idleness there is a welcome release of energy when  today I resume familiar chores in the garden, especially  hoeing, weeding and earthing up between the potato rows, a usually tedious job.

The star-shaped florets of alliums (ornamental members of the onion and garlic family) are opening slowly, and beginning to contribute to the purple globes of the flower heads which are promised. I planted the bulbs in the Autumn which, at the other end of the long winter seems, now seems to be in the remote past.
