Emotional Agapanthus Season

This year my agapanthus season begun with a lot of anger. Some people (whom I did not catch at it) started to bend long stems and as a result there were many almost broken agapanthuses. I tried to catch perpetrators, I tried to change my route or walk past without looking at the unhappy flowers, I tried to think why this makes me so sad and give it names. But at the end I started cutting dead yellow stalks and bent flowers and made bouquets to draw. This helped.

  1. Hello! I feel your disappointment! so look forward to June and the agapanthus! The neighborhood kids have taken to hacking the flower heads off the agapanthus, before they start blooming. It's so frustrating (and upsetting)!
