This agapanthus has confirmed its intention to flower, now it is not a matter of “if” but of “when”. Looking beautiful in its lilac infused casing, I can wait until the time is right, in fact the anticipation enhances the experience. Each day I will check for fault lines and the bulgings of the eager blooms, until one evening I will come home to find a fully formed sphere of indigo. That is how it works, it won’t be hurried, I won’t be impatient. Possibly. I will try very hard anyway.
