Hurtled to 60 – The Retirement Years
A garden must combine the poetic and the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy – Luis Barragan
Stunning shot – all that tension in the waiting to burst open
I just clicked on this because I never knew what an Agapanthus was although I’ve heard it said many times. I love that this bud is your favourite! It’s amazing. You give me courage to take snapshots, however amateur, of the blossoms all around our desert this year. It seems like every century plant, every Joshua Tree, every cactus burst wildly into bloom this year. Very delightful for the desert. Thank you for your amazing sharing. It’s water in a thirsty desert (hee hee).
My favourite plant too. I am so jealous. Not one of mine are showing any signs of a flower appearing yet. (The ones in the garden all got damaged in the winter, but the leaves are growing back so I suspect these won’t flower). I was hoping that my two in containers which were undercover would as they didn’t lose their leaves…..but no sign of anything ;-( I will have to get my agapanthus fix by looking at yours.
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. This is my most favourite plant. It is a tight bud for so long with so much promise then is very slowly bursts into a wonder flower. Beautiful in all stages
Very striking! I love flower buds and newly emerging foliage, a world full of promise!
The promise of things to come! Lovely picture – my agapanthus bit the dust in the last dreadful winter. Must replace.
That is just so cool.
gorgeous reven in bud form…wish i could grow them as a perennial…
You made my day! I love Agapanthus…and to see it in this stage is lovely!
Ronnie what a beautiful photo of the bursting buds, Frances
This is such a cool image. It looks so different close up before the blooms open. We do not have agapanthus here and I so wish we did.
There is such hope of lovelyness there! Christina
