Monday 2 January 2017


The Christmas/New Year holiday period in Melbourne is the time where the Agapanthus is in bloom. It is widely planted, not only ing gardens and parks, but also on roadside reserves and road safety islands throughout the suburbs. When it blooms it is a sure sign of the Summer season.

This post is part of the Blue Monday meme,
and also part of the Macro Monday meme,
and also part of the Through my Lens meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. Happy first Monday of 2017 And all the best for this new year

    much love...

  2. I grow them here in TX. It must be a beautiful sight if they grow along the roadsides.
    Happy New Year!

  3. Love that time of year when the Agapanthus is blooming in California, because not long after the Jacaranda also blooms. It's snowing here when I look out my window! A happy New Year to you and your captures throughout the year have been appreciated much - for ALL SEASONS as well as myself:)

  4. As common as it is over here, I still find it quite striking when it lines a drive or the front property line. I hope the new year brings you great things.

  5. That's a pretty color!

  6. Because Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor has no Internet for the foreseeable future, I invite you to post your “blues” at Blue Monday 2. Links only, no previews, but we’ll have a lot of fun until Jeanne can get back online. Hope to see you soon!
