If it’s May, it must be time for me to make redundant statements about agapanthus.

The Lilies-of-the-Nile are being impish again. I was going to remark that as much as I adore their purple spheres of bloom, this bud stage is when I love them best—but I see I already said that, a year ago. I really am repeating myself; I see too that I posted an agapanthus bud exactly one year ago today. Impish they may be, but they are punctual little fellows!

    Well, it is the reassuring wonder of Spring, no? All those wonderful, repetitive cycles.

    I finally read Fruitless Fall — wonderful book, but yikes! (and now of course I want to start keeping bees)

    I dreamt again last night that our families were visiting — Scott whipped up a marvelous brunch of gluten free pancakes and waffles and such for all while the children played and you and I chatted. Very nice of him 🙂
