'flower of love'

A new agapanthus/Afican lily Ray bought at the specialist nursery last year now in flower in our garden. I'm looking forward to going again this year as last time I found a lovely stranger and lots of flower shots.

Trying for bokeh here which turned out a bit too prolific!
A stunning capture and fabulous colour! I like the bokeh, something I don't seem to be able to achieve. Fav!

I love agapanthus. A few years ago we had two in our garden and at the end of each year we split them and now we have a whole row of them.

You need to be close to your subject. Use a wide aperture/macro lens and have some diffused light or points of light behind ithe subject something like 4 feet behind works for me. I have been practising! The light in this shot was sunlight filtering through wisteria leaves

I love agapanthus, a beautiful blue! Such large blooms! They are very common in NZ growing all along the sides of the roads all summer.

How wonderful - the only place I have ever seen agapanthus is on the Isles of Scilly. Beautiful things.

They grow along the levadas in Madeira. This one is unusual for its color.
