Yardbirds

I was looking at the garden from the deck the other day and this is what I could see...


They look like predatory birds guarding the lesser garden residents.


These tall garlic plants have such interesting shapes.  Not to mention delicious bulbs for cooking. 


But, really, I want to get out my Sharpie and draw some googly eyes on them.  Don't they remind you of Big Bird?

Yes, they do!! Or a plant from another planet. I have never seen garlic plants that big in my life, are they a special kind or something?

Incredible garlic! You could fend off a posse of vampires with them.

I had to laugh about Big Bird. It's what I've personally nicknamed one of my colleague. She looks exactly like BB. She's tall and gangly with a mop of yellow hair. Big Bird.

I've tried to get these in WA but had no luck! Can only see 1 pic but yes Big Bird lookalike!
