Thanks pixie! I took this photo when I was on vacation in California last July. That was just one small area where it was growing. I wish I'd had a wide angle lens to take it all in because it was a long line of plants down the entire property line and all the way from the fence to the street, a really beautiful sight! I have one measly clump of Agapanthus in my backyard and would love to have mas

This is such a freeway plant here in California and also lots of industrial sites use it so I see it all over. When I first saw it, I thought it was so spectacular but now it has taken on the persona of where it is planted. I really should think of it more positvely as so hardy that it thrives in such places. I do love that photo!
