I had no idea how pretty the Onion Flower was, but now it is time for harvest!

All the Aliums have great flower heads like this, but you've done a particularly fine job of capturing its beauty

Thanks guys. Not sure what go me on the flower train, I guess I get tired of the dead streets here and it takes an effort to go out sometimes. Not sure why, it's not like there aren't a million things to see everyday. (Ukrainian girls!) But this little onion is from our garden, it is taking the place of some mexican chilies that failed to sprout this year.
