Wild Onions

I tried to get a few of these that are in our yard by the hundreds before Mrs Rupert mowed them down. I'm sort of rusty on macro shooting, but they are lovely little blooms, very tiny, would all fit on a quarter, or less.

They are all shades of lilac, a few are solid white. They are edible and have tiny bulbs about the size of a peanut. Good in salads.

I would have let them all live...but Mrs Rupert wanted the grass moved, the weeds were knee high.......and we do have snakes here!

These are very pretty and quite ephemeral looking Rupert. You did a wonderful job of capturing their short and beautiful life. Thank you for sharing!

very pretty photos Rupert, they sure have a wonderful color to them. I guess what you mow you can eat, would make a great salad.
