grand opening . . .

When these Agapanthus burst into bloom it almost seems an explosion of color and spiky shapes. Year after year, I love to photograph these flowers. ;-)

And voila! is that spelled correctly? Well, we ached for the brotando/bursting forth...and you bring it to us the next day. You are very kind to us all...visions of blue/purple make me warm and happy. Tinges of pink and the light still managing an eerie translucence. I love the way you love an agapanthus.
