    I’m with you on agapanthus bud clusters, as they are fascinatingly photogenic (and you have such a sympathetic vibe with them). LOVE that sinuous bend in the stem, a saucy touch that lets these buds say, “Hello world, here we ARE!” Great work, Joy!

  • Thanks so much Celeste for your lovely comment. It was the stem that attracted me to this flower. We have a few white coming in to bloom but it is much more common to see the blue/purple ones in flower. This is a different kind to what bloomed about two month ago. These have a larger flower head.
