  1. Stunning pictures, Beth. I'm zone 5 but don't see allium or rhubarb yet. Spring is on its way, however! P.x

    1. Thanks, Pam. All of these plants are near the foundation of the house, which probably helps to keep them warmer. And they're facing south (the rhubarb is on the southwest corner). They get a full afternoon of sun. Yes, spring is just about to happen!

  2. I wish I'd had success with 'Globemaster'. It makes a great statement in the garden. Spring is coming!

    1. Hi Kris: Yes, I love it! It's so colorful as the foliage emerges, and then the stems are so tall and elegant, and the flower heads are large and lovely. Yay spring!

  3. The first photo of the purple and green foliage, wow. So pretty. It's nice to see signs of life, isn't it? Winter is almost over.

    1. Yes, signs of spring are so much fun. The 'Globemaster' Alliums are awesome--from emergence to blooms to seedheads. :)

    1. I know; so exciting! I can't wait until all the snow melts this week to see what else is emerging. And with a few days of warmth, we'll have blooms!

    1. It is! I know there are many more poking through under the snow...a couple of warm days, and we'll have blooms. Cheers!

  7. Ooh, those Allium are so tempting! I will have to enjoy yours as they don't love it here.

    1. I keep planting more and more of them because I have a terrible rabbit problem here, Susie. I thought my garden was too shady, but they emerge and bud before the trees leaf out. Win, win!

    1. Thanks, Andrea. The Alliums are so lovely at all the stages, but probably wouldn't be noticed at emergence if we didn't look closely. Happy spring!

  12. I so appreciate seeing that excitement. My autumn bulbs don't carry the same impact, set against greens.

    1. I keep adding more Alliums--rabbits won't eat them, and they're so beautiful. :)

  13. Those Alliums are stunning. Never thought of them emerging with so much beauty.

    1. Yes, the 'Globemasters,' in particular, seem to have loads of color at the emergence stage. And the flowers are lovely, too, if just a little more understated for color...but so tall!

  14. Wow, you are making me crazy to drive back home right now and check on what's coming out of the ground! I'm in Springfield until tomorrow, though.

    1. Oh yeah, I'm sure you have quite a few plants poking up, and probably several budding and blooming by the time you get home. Enjoy!

  15. Very beautiful photos. The last seems to express what a momentous event Spring is after a cold winter in which so much is dormant.

    1. Thank you. Yes, that is a great description of the transition from brutal winter to milder spring. Well-described!

  16. Perfect! I love your captures of Allium Globemaster and other spring bulbs rising to show their foliage. Spring is coming!!!!

  17. Beautiful!! Never knew that any emerging Alliums looked like that! :O
