The Gladiator Allium Bulb is a seasonal flower that blooms between Spring and early Summer. They create a very unusual effect that will remind you of something out of a Dr. Seuss book! These precious flowers give off a pleasing sweet aroma and measure up to 6 inches in diameter! They can grow up to 4 feet tall and have been found in hues of blue and purple!
A couple in Canada was ill-prepared for the double-shocker that they were about to unearth in their backyard. Ken Campbell and Nicole Suave of Sarnia, Ontario were building a fence when they came across what they believed to be some sort of animal. When they contacted the Ontario Provincial Police to investigate, a Forensic Anthropologist confirmed the bones to be that of an aboriginal woman!
The anthropologist believes that the remains belong to a 24 year old female that dates back to the late 1500’s to the early 1600’s. Experts have theorized that she was a member of a hunting and gathering fishing society.
So how did they incur the $5K bill? Under Ontario’s Funeral Burial and Cremation Services Act, evaluation of all properties found to house human remains is mandated. This required the couple to hire an archaeologist to assess their property! A local environmental committee is fundraising to help cover their costs and Ken & Nicole have also sent an appeal to the Mayor of Sarnia. Best of luck to them!
