Thanks for Breakfast, Jane

After a glorious morning breakfast of fruit from the garden…

Agapanthus

This is the glory of the garden this week…our Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile). Last year it was rescued from the front yard deer ravagings, and transferred it to the protected back yard. This is the first year it has bloomed!

Thank you girls!

A little jug of glory came into Jane’s kitchen.

    • I agree – it is so nice in the summer, to be able to bring a little bit of the glorious garden indoors! I couldn’t bring myself to pinching off any agapanthus bells though, or the indoor bouquet would have been even more so!

  1. How funny to see agapanthus so carefully guarded and cherished, when here it’s almost a pest and propagates and spreads itself madly. I love agapanthus because of its gorgeous blue and how tall and stately the flowers are.

    • It is one of the bluest flowers in the garden here, and not a pest at all, but a glory and delight if it deigns to blossom! I think we are a little more soggy here than it likes in the winter…and then there are the voracious six-inch slugs, and the raccoons that like to dig up the garden in search of them!
