Catching up - Inniswood in June

I've been to Inniswood Metro Park several times, but this time with Susy I found a few things I had not seen before.

The Story Maze and the Grandfather tree. You follow the numbered squares and read the story as you walk through the maze.

At the end of the maze, you see this!

The treehouse looked vaguely familiar, but this time I got a close look.
Cool tree house

Unfortunately, I can't remember what this was (it's been a few weeks since I was there), but it had lots of nifty surprises nestled around it.
Old bricks
Music in the garden
Art in surprising places
Thoreau
Nifty urn/pot

Most of the blooms were a shade of purple while we were there. Can anyone tell me what this is?
I've seen them several different places, but haven't found out what they are.
What are these?

This statue was kind of off of the path and somewhat hidden. I thought it was cool.

Finally, I really liked this tree. It seemed so vibrant to me.
I love this

Late replying, but that flower you were asking about is some sort of allium, probably Globemaster. See it here: http://www.brentandbeckysbulbs.com/spring/productview/?sku=03-0127

I love your herb garden pics. The story maze is incredible.

I commented on your flickr about the allium, but it looks like cameo knew as well.

How strange...I just posted a story with a reference to the Sky Woman statue at Inniswoods gardens, then happen over here and see you have posted her photo.

HA!
