Good morning.....
Thank you for your continued support and to Moira (Moiral) and Fred (Fred263) for their UA's....all much appreciated and treasured.
Another agapanthus, this one captured yesterday afternoon in our garden. Straight out of the camera and cropped to square. Hand held as I was getting funny looks from our Complex's security guard as I was poking my tripod into the flower beds.
Have a nice day

Mine (in a pot) has just been hit by the frost and moved into the (unheated) greenhouse in the hope it survives the winter. Fingers crossed.
