Agapanthus – Haiku – FOTD December 1, 2018

The flower of love
In full bloom – agapanthus
Embraces summer

What a gorgeous, sunny day in Sydney for the first day of summer in Oz! Even more appreciated after stormy weather, torrential rain and flooding in my neighbourhood only three days ago.

Yesterday was a fine day, too, and I took these photos of agapanthus in my neighbours’ gardens. I looked up “agapanthus” on Google, and for the first time learnt that its name is derived from Greek agape, love, and anthos, flower, hence my haiku for the first day of summer.


Peek a boo!


Soaking up the sun…


Feeling great as I am, in no hurry to grow up!


Wishing you all a happy weekend filled with love and the warmth of the sun or the cosy fireplace! 😊

    Bonjour mon AMIE IRINAS

    Ce jour
    je regarde le ciel et je pense
    je m’évade et m’envole dans le plus grand silence
    voir un monde meilleur
    Je rêve, je m’imagine que le bonheur est
    sans challenge,ni concurrence,ni vainqueur,ni vaincu
    Voir tout le monde avec le sourire
    Regarder les enfants , courir , sauter , s’amuser ,

    en cette période de Noel tout est beau

    Aimer toujours aimer quoi de plus beau
    sans le dire on peut le montrer , quel joli cadeau
    Je passe te souhaiter une bonne de journée ou soirée
    Gros bisous . Bernard

  4. I too have them in my garden, my husband planted them… A rare act of gardening on his part.
