Snap : Honeybells

I have decided this week to follow a similar theme to my last Snap following one beautiful flower through it's flowering journey. This is to join in with Helena in her weekly memo Snap. Firstly before I start on my Snap sequence I would like to show you a picture of this lovely flower which I think is worth seeing but kind of doesn't fit in with the others.


This is called Honeybells or if you want it's full Latin name Nectaroscordum Siculum. I bought these bulbs in Tescos when I was doing my biweekly shop. I seem to recall that I bought them because there was a 2 for £5 offer on the packets to go with a packet of tulips.
The bulbs are planted in a patch of grass with the alliums that I blogged last week and have made a great display. I shall be on the outlook from some more of these for next year.

  1. Love these photos, great against the backgrounds, guess you selected a very wide aperture? Isn't this the Sicilian 'honey garlic'? It certainly has a look of garlic flower about it.

  2. Wow, beautiful flowers. I'd like some of these in my garden. I'll have to look out for them next time I'm in a garden centre. Are they quite small?
