Agapanthus Opening

This afternoon I went out into my backyard and saw that one of the agapanthus pods was opening.

Perhaps it is because I have never divided up the plant. I don’t think I had too many scapes last year either. I may have to check my pictures to see.

I am looking forward to some beautiful flowers.
