Say hello to my very sad, single agapanthus in the front yard. When I planted a bunch of them in the back, there was one much larger and different than the others, and since I was planting them in a line to create a curved river bed shape, I decided to plant this one elsewhere. Unfortunately, I didn’t think about the deer and the bunnies. They were very happy to see this Lily of the Nile, and ate it down to the nubbins within a week! But the agapanthus perservered and is blooming (albeit not particularly attractive!) in spite of its tough beginnings. I’m glad, because I find them to be beautiful, regal plants and I’ve got my fingers crossed for her!
Thanks for visiting my blog
I'm glad you've found my garden journal. Perhaps the only thing greater than the satisfaction of nurturing a seed to a seedling to a blooming or producing plant is the joy of sharing nature's bounty with others. Whether I'm peddling garden tomatoes we can't possibly eat or sharing stories about why the verbena isn't doing well, my garden connects me. It connects me to the earth, to our wildlife friends, to fellow gardeners, and, to myself. So, welcome. I hope you'll feel connected here.
