Leek Star Globes

Allium Ampeloprasum, variety porrum, Allium porrum

Starry pink Allium flowers form perfect spheres, with either white or magenta stamens to the mini-flowers which radiate from the centre. Tiny line colour details close up. The full flowering stage is preceded by ‘pixie hat’ shaped covers, which enlarge then split open to reveal myriad small pale pink or white flowers.

Each tiny flower is bell shaped like a bluebell, with turned up bell points, which grow green seeds within. In July the seeds start to form cleary in green, changing to black seeds, inside each of the myriad of tiny pink flowers on the star globe.

These flowers are using the universal toroid energy from the universe, where the energy forms from the centre, spiralling up and around to create seeds.

The backdrop harmonises with Nigella flowers and seed pods. Photos show both seed pods from first Nigella plants and a second flowering of new Nigella seedlings in July, (unusual but encouraged by long sunny spell).  A grasshopper can be spotted on a June image of a just opened flower globe, and a hover fly on the fully opened July flowers.  Bees also love them, spotted in a distant image.  Leeks were too thin to bother picking, so I left them to see their flowers, providing seeds for next year.
