Hi Carol.....
Love your garden balls, the beautiful Alliums and the glass ones. I bought 3 glass balls recently, but I can’t find anything like you have to display them in. They look so gorgeous.
What an adorable photograph of Sammy pussycat too. Marion

Love the garden balls...I think I need to put some of the floral variety into my garden. It seems that I have quite a few shades of purple..these would add to them.

I don't have any garden balls but I've seen them in the stores and now that I see how pretty they look amongst the flowers, I think I'll go buy one or two! Just love your garden and the way you have glass balls, bird feeders, etc, in between everything. Perfect!!

Beautiful as always. I plan to add alliums to my garden sortiment this summer. I love flowers in shades of blue, purple and lilac.

Hi Carol,
Breathtaking! Your photos are just lovely, and I'm grateful for the names that you put next to them. I'm not a gardner, but I rever nature. I'm trying to learn 100 names of plants this year. Bravo also for the beauty that you put together in your garden. I'll be back.
