Here is my entry for this month’s photo contest at Gardening Gone Wild. The theme is “End of the Line.”
This is an allium gone to seed, brown and dying, metaphorically at the end of the line. It is also literally at the end of the line—its straight, brown stem. But there are other lines at play here too: the curving line of the brown pot, and a diagonal line of spherical alliums from the upper left down to the focal point, starting with an unripened green flower head, progressing to white flowers, then focusing in on the brown, faded seedhead.
