Lovely leek flowers

I always like to leave some unharvested spare leeks to flower and go to seed. Such lovely other-worldly flowers… Just as good as their cousins the ornamental alliums, they are a great favourite with bees, a good source of saved seeds to plant next spring, and sometimes a forest of baby leek plants grow all by themselves, leaving me only to transplant them!
