Looks rather like an Agapanthus, certainly not an easy one to capture, but what a brilliant blue. Excellent shot Ann.

Gorgeous colour Ann, with excellent detail against the out of focus pale background. Its lovely when in flower but has a very large root ball if you ever need to move them, as I found out. Glad to see you are finally getting better. Take care.
