Photo a Day 23 - Agapanthus

This time of the year the agapanthus are making the garden come alive. Just had to share them with you.





Glorious deep blue




The agapanthus were originally from South Africa, but they love Australia and we love them. They can be seen in many gardens and in fact they tend to become a pest as they are so hardy.

  4. I remember seeing lots of them when we visited our son in Australia, but I don’t think any of the ones we saw were as good as yours. The snowdrops are just pushing up through the soil in our back garden – a sure sign of spring in the UK. Barbara a visitor from Sepia Saturday - thanks for coming over to see me.

  6. I have a friend who lives nearby on the Escarpment in the bush. She has spent hours pulling them out at her place. But, I love them too. A sign of the approach of the Christmas season they are also known as 'Star of Bethlehem'
