My fickle heart turns to other flowers once all my lovely meconopsis have stopped flowering, and at the moment, in a deeper shade of blue are the wonderfully beautiful agapanthus.
To start with, the buds show quite white as the bud casing splits
but within a day they are all showing their true blue colours.
Day by day, they show more promise.
The buds are so dark now, shades of things to come.
Free at last, fully out and showing once more just how beautiful they are.
How can a bee refuse the invitation to explore.
No wishy washy pale blues for me, the dark blues look so lovely in our bee and butterfly border by the drive. When these were planted 2 yrs ago we just had one flower on each of the three plants, the following year we had 2 flowers on each, this year I will leave you to count !! Hope it will carry on like this, getting better and better each year.
