Field Garlic Flower 2

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 7 July 2008 in Plant & Nature.

Here is a view of the entire flower of which yesterday's photo was a small part. Most field garlic flowers are fuller than this one, but I like this one's simplicity.
Taken indoors with black felt background using window light and tripod.

I never knew garlic had such delicate flowers !

@Namaki: This is not a cultivated garlic, but one that grows in the meadows. I don't know exactly what the flower of cultivated garlic looks like.

Very pretty photo. The black is a perfect choice for the background. I used to have those growing in my yard years ago. They are so pretty.
