Life imitates art (again)
Posted By: NaClH2O, 05-27-2007, 11:27 AM

Allium, otherwise known as the onion flower. Member of the onion family. But what strikes me is how every one I've ever seen reminds me of a fireworks burst.

very neat - my son (nearly 3) thinks it's a "boom boom" as well - he was sitting in my lap as I'm looking at photos.

Well I guess that makes it official then. Who would be foolish enough to argue about creative viewing with a 3 year old!
