Giant Allium

Note: In my house, despite knowing this is the giant allium bloom, we always call it the Dr. Seuss plant, in honor of it looking like his truffula trees in the Lorax. Every year it delights us and makes us smile.

  1. Long time no read Brenda! Beautiful poem and that was some kind of flower! I found this that I thought you might be interested since you´re the Haiku expert.

    Thought that maybe you would find it a challenge. Although you probably have stacks and stacks or Haikus around that beautiful garden.
