Peeking out from this photo is a small miracle.
It's an agapanthus in flower. Which may not seem all that miraculous to you. In fact lots of people don't even like agapanthus plants and some relegate them to the category of weeds.
But I have a soft spot for them. They remind me of Adelaide - a city close to my heart - where they abound. They remind me of Christmas. I love their colour.
The thing is, I have had four attempts in four different gardens at growing them but have never managed to have one flower. But our current garden obviously has the right soil.
And behold, a flower!
