Meandering with camera…
It’s a blast of lavender blue, and a gorgeous one at that!
My favorite color. Or one of them.. 😉
I love the color of agapanthus! 🙂
Me, too. It’s somewhere between blue and purple or what I think of as ‘periwinkle’. Definitely a favorite. Another huge plus is how easy it is to grow here. Even I can handle it! 😉
Spectacular all!!! How did I miss this post? Love that blue, just stunning!
Thank you, my friend… I love that shade of blue (periwinkle?), too. I have no idea how you might have missed it unless you’re as befuddled as I am lately.
Simply gorgeous Gunta. Beautiful colours. 🙂
Thanks, Chilli… mum nature provides, I just shoots… 😀
Such crisp detail…and beautiful flowers.
Such fun to shoot…… 😉
Beautiful Gunta and I always love purple!
Thanks, Phil. They certainly are pretty. Almost as nice as your alligators… or perhaps the Spoonies? 😉
One of my favoritest colors also – especially in flowers and in my yard! GORGEOUS photos!
Thank you, Linda! They sure are pretty and seem to do really well here.
Exquisite! My all-time favourite flower. P
Thanks. Me, too! They’re just so elegant and the color is a favorite, too.
When we bought our house in Cork (city), we had a huge clump of them in the front garden but they haven’t flowered in eight years….I keep hoping they will re-appear but nothing’s happening…
I’m not sure, but I think they’re bulbs. Perhaps you need to divide them to give them more room? Just guessing.
I’ll look into it, thanks!
one word Gunta – Gentle
That seems to work! Thanks for commenting. I’m so glad I found you where you didn’t belong! I suppose we put up with these glitches because WP is still the best I’ve found.
Oh… and three words… new macro lens! 😉
Blue velvet – love these my Dad grows them in the garden
My house came with one planted by the front door. I have since added some. I had never paid much attention to them, but they seem to be in nearly all the gardens out toward the beach. Now that I’ve grown to love them, I see them everywhere (or so it seems.) Your dad has some wonderful taste in flowers! 😉
Beautiful….I can see why it’s one of your favorites 🙂
… and aside from the beauty, they seem to thrive here with very little effort.
Breathtakingly beautiful photos, Gunta. I didn’t know that they were called Lily of the Nile. Years ago, we tried grow these in our back yard, and our naughty Doberman would wait for one to start flowering, and then bite its head off. 😦
Wikipedia said they’re also called “African lilies”. I love everything about these marvelous flowers and they seem to thrive here with minimal care. And another little bonus…. it’s fun to say ‘agapanthus’ (flower of love in Greek?) VERY naughty doberman!! 😦
Nice photos! I taught Lexi about Agapanthus just the other day. There are so many varieties now but they all look pretty similar.
Thanks, Moriah. Did not know they came in other varieties. They seem to be in all the landscaping in Bandon. Mine came with the house, but I’ve added some since.
Ha ha I like to call Agapanthus the real California state flower they are everywhere there.
As always superb!
Wonderful flowers and photos. Did you know that the word “Agapanthus” comes from Greek and means “Flower of love”?
Thanks. I think Wikipedia mentioned it when I looked it up.
What a beautiful flower.
I agree, it’s certainly one of my favorites (and so easy to grow in our climate) ….. according to WIkipedia, they are ” native to South Africa, from the Cape of Good Hope to the Limpopo River.”
All the photos are good, but the first one is one to be framed!
Funny thing is that I don’t generally do framed pics for myself. I get bored looking at the same shot after awhile. What I did do was a lovely calendar (11×14 on glossy paper). It was even a handy gift to give at Xmas.
Oh yes! 😀
