Is it an allium?

I have some of these bulbs in my garden and I'm pretty sure that when I bought them they weren't labelled as allium, not sure what they were called though. Anyway, this is the start of a new watercolour based on a photo I took in my friend Janet Thomas' beautiful garden last summer. This is only a small section of the whole composition.

There's a long way to go yet, hopefully I'll get most of the little florets finished tomorrow!

So beautiful, delicate. The light on the stems is amazing--they look so real, rounded and translucent.
