It looks like some kind of Alliium to me or a lily perhaps.

But you don't know exactly what.?I know he said it grew from a bulb which he planted a couple of years ago.This is the first time it has grown.

Just had a call from Fiona .She is now waiting for the results of her scan on her head.She sends her regards to everyone.She has had her eldest daughter and baby Sofia staying while Sofia's daddy has been away in Italy.I think she is exhausted lol.Little Sofia sounds a little live wire.

Chris and I were having dinner outside (luckily under the Gazebo) when we had a bit of a thunder storm and the rain just came down.We were stranded for a while ,so he had to wait for his pudding until the rain stopped and I could get back to the kitchen lol

I loved spud guns as a child. Dad bought me one once down the caravan and it was like a small rifle. Hilt was black and the barrel was brass. Worked on the same princable as Mandy's pop gun.
