Good morning GTers! It's nearly the weekend again so it must be time for a #FlashbackFriday post! This #blue #agapanthus was definitely my most prolific flowerer last year, producing dozens and dozens of flower spikes! Have a a fabulous Friday everyone! 😀

@nessas - This particular one went crazy last year - take a look at the second and third pictures before this one! They seem to like to have their roots crowded - mine are in a smallish pot for the size of the root system! Have a fabotastic day yourself! 😀

Afternoon Ian, that’s bluetiful! Hope mine actually bother to turn up this year 😆

@rachelbrooks - Another blue flower that's reluctant to show! I've always had success when I've restricted root growth, either by growing in small pots or surrounding the roots with rocks! 😀

Good evening all! Can't believe it has been over two weeks since I last posted but I've just got my broadband connection working properly again! Hope everyone is well! This is the first year that these #white #agapanthus plants have flowered and I think they look very pretty, even when covered in raindrops! 😀

Good evening all! It has been a very busy week for me so far but I'm all set now for a long weekend with gardening, fish keeping and photography all on the agenda! Can't believe how many flowers my #blue #agapanthus has this year! I couldn't fit it all in a square picture so had to go panoramic! 😀

Good evening all! I've been neglecting my garden recently due to work and aquarium refurbishment duties but it doesn't seem to have deterred my #agapanthus from going crazy! I count over thirty separate flower stems! Can anyone beat that? 😀

Good afternoon GTers! Been alternating between sunshine and showers so far today, and one of my #agapanthus has decided it likes the conditions! 😁

Good afternoon GTers! I was surprised to find that one of my #agapanthus was coming into bud already! Seems a bit early to me! Never mind! I'm off to the pub this afternoon for a much deserved rest! Hope you have a great afternoon too and I'll play catch up tomorrow! 😀
