My leeks are in full bloom, this one photographed in the afternoon of the 4th of July looking like the big beautiful umbrella-type fireworks I’d see later in the evening.
I like that big wasp-like insect too. That and the yellow-jacket are no danger to me when blooming plants are around!

That big one was a little scary–I’m always afraid they’ll fly around and get caught in my hair because it’s happened–but with a big bloom like the leek flower, they aren’t at all interested in me. Those flowers are about 5″ across!

I’m not keen on those insects but I love the flower and title 🙂
