Agapanthus

The white agapanthus sun burst

I was up early dealing with Winnie's " accidents in the night" and now the cottage smells of dettol and grass cuttings as the cottage windows are wide and open and welcoming.and the sound of the washing machine wafts down the lane with a purr.

It's a bright lovely morning.

The velvet voiced Linda has already sent out her weekly morale boosting Warden message and like any good leader would expect the replies have been making my phone wriggle with excitement as they come in
Happy Sunday one and all. It's a truly beautiful morning. I hope you're all well and that life is good in your part of the village. HUGE thank yous for your kindness and generosity - you are a wonderful bunch 💕🌈🤗 xxxxx
All seems well in the village, according to the warden replies anyhow .
There is a meeting in the village hall soon about the hall putting in for a drinks licence next week and work continues to obtain funding for the clearing of the village pond
Old Trevor rang me earlier  complaining that the binmen had taken his recycling bags.
I told him I had found them wedged in the fence and I would return them shortly
He wished me a good Sunday
There feels a change in the air , which I think Hattie sort of captured in her Warden reply to General Linda
"The outlying areas all quiet and we're all okay over here thank you lovely linda :) the world is slowly finding its way isn't it! Xx💞
Im going to visit a couple of friends later, but as the sun is shining and it's warm and comfortable  I'm off to plant foxgloves and salvia in the garden,


I note that the Ginger Bastard is sitting very erect  in the long grass of the old Church Yard. He is watching the cottage . Dotty and Albert are sunbathing on the path  and have no idea they are being watched
The white agapanthus I planted a couple of months ago has now started to flower with exuberant firework bursts blooms
They look quite magnificent against the dry stone wall

  2. Sounds amazing! I adore agapanthus, or agathapanthus as we call it, but like so many lovely British plants it is a menace here. it takes over like Tabitha.
    I can almost smell the garden from your description. Cold and yuk here!

  4. My elderly cat (22, equivalent to 104 human years) used to have little accidents. She would make it to the litter tray, climb inside but stick her backside over the edge and then pee! There would be newspaper everywhere to try to stop the spread. I never minded...just hope someone is as understanding should I reach that stage. Your garden is looking beautiful and I love the agapanthus x

      My old cat did exactly that! Anyone who saw her headed in the direction of her tray would run and try to hook her back legs into it! So undignified, poor old thing. We had yards of newpaper round it too. She was 20 when she died. Alison P

  12. Oh, it sounds like an episode of The Archers ! Your garden is looking so pretty John .... your agapanthus is beautiful .... I have flower envy as they don’t seem to like our garden. The garden gives so much joy doesn’t it .... my husband has just mowed the lawn which always makes the garden look so much nicer. XXXX

    what a lovely description of your village life on this Sunday morning!

    So glad you found Old Trevor's bin bags and could relieve his worry.

    Your garden and its other-worldly agapanthus are absolutely glorious. You and Janet have wrought a miracle outside your cottage.

    Hugs!

  15. This post has made me realise that mine aren't flowering this year and the ones on the other side of the garden appear to be missing. I wonder what happened?

    Yes this does read like an episode of the Archers, before these shite monologues, ' no Alan Bennett writing that tripe at the moment.
    Humm, Ginger B, do ya' know who's cat he is?
    Is he lost/hungry/wants to come and live at your gaff?
    Mind you l thought l was looking after a pregnant tabby once, cooking fresh fish, bying cat milk and all sorts. She wouldn't let me look at her bits though and feel for the kittens she was carrying!
    Turned out it was just a fat greedy BOY cat who was known in the area for trying it on with gullible animal lovers.

  22. I like the white agapanthus John I think it is almost more dramatic than the usual blue.

  23. My Goodness! Your sister’s efforts - and yours, of course - have created a lovely space for relaxing in. I also love ‘Agathapanthas’ I don’t care that they’re supposed to be an invasive pest, they’re green, they don’t get eaten by critters, and they go on flowering for ever. AND, did you know, the dried flower heads and stems are great for winter floral work, painted black (or silver, if that’s your fancy).

  28. The Agapanthus is spectacular; actually the entire garden looks great. Sometimes the normal days are the best days.

  29. I noticed the rainbow among the emoji at the end of the Warden's message. Nice bit of inclusiveness there.

  33. Love the agapanthus, and the garden overall! We have a purple agapanthus, which I suppose is the typical color.
