A Photograph of a Purple Round Dr. Suess Flowers at Descanso Gardens...



I took this photograph of three purple flowers being visited by bees at Descanso Gardens.  I'm not sure what kind of flower this is, it's similar to garlic flowers but not quite a match; it reminds of flowers that Dr. Suess would illustrate.  I've been focused on trying to get my home decent for inspectors/repair people to come so my paintings in progress are waiting patiently for me...

Edit: It turns out my mystery flowers are Alliums, thank you Rebecca and Descanso Gardens twitter!

So wonderful flower! I think we didn't have this kind of flower in my state! I loved the color *-*

That is a really great find. I guess that is where Dr. Seuss got his inspiration from.
