Wild leeks have an interesting habit.  The leaves come up in the spring, but die back in May.  The flower stalks emerge in summer, without leaves, blooming in June or July.  The seed heads then gradually dry, and remain visible often until the next spring.  One can therefore find this form of potential distress in almost any season. . . .   OK, Winston, we'll go for a walk.  But no acorns!
