Summer's Flowers - Allium

I really enjoy Alliums.  They are a large family of bulbs that bloom from spring through to late fall. Here are 2 variations. The first is a current blooming cernuum allium about 6 inches tall in my salad garden, and the second is the 2 foot tall June-blooming version - likely Purple Sensation - outside of the Gooderham and Wort Flatiron building on Front Street Toronto.  I'm looking forward to having alliums bloom into October with the allium thunbergii Ozawa.
