Who would have thought?

Last year while spending my morning rummaging I stopped at this home that had the most unique colored alliums, they were beautiful! I asked the homeowner if that is a new variation and she smile and said, “well”. She went on to explain after her alliums bloomed and the color faded they looked so sad. So she grabbed a piece of cardboard and a spray paint can and gave them a little refreshing, how smart. So this year I remembered those alliums and had to give it a try. I will now get to enjoy their beauty in my flower beds a bit longer. Thought I’d share this little hack. Now to see how many people ask where I bought blue alliums from :)
