Full frame, 21 mm width.


Crop of the above, at 80% pixels.


I've been doing too much other stuff lately, so today I decided to treat myself to a little photo session.

These are the flowers of common garden chives. I just thought they were pretty. Hope you enjoy them too! Very Happy

A treat and a revelation. When we grow chives they get chopped and eaten long before they have a chance to flower. Maybe not next time.

They are very pretty.

Mine not out yet either. They appear to be much lighter than ours too.

Thanks, Aynia.

I took another look at the flowers outside in my garden. The whole heads give an appearance of being a bit darker and more purple than what I'm showing above. I think maybe the color shifts as the flowers age. The ones I'm showing here are more like the center flowers in this image at Wikipedia.

Straying outside the macro range, many Allium species/varieties have geometrically pleasing, e.g. spherical, inflorescences, often also strikingly coloured. The shapes persist for the seed heads.
