It’s cold and gray and *not* snowing (we got just a sprinkle) in New Jersey (I like snow, it makes me happy), so I am reaching into the archives and bringing you this tall, pretty flower (agapanthaceae or agapanthus, thank you to my brilliant European blogger friends, Ilana-Davita and Jientje) that I photographed last July in the City of David outside the Old City of Jerusalem.

In case you were wondering, it’s agapanthaceae. I photographed some in Sweden last year and Germany last August. I like their proud look.
Beautiful!! That’s Agapantus, isn’t it?
Looks beautiful! I have some shots of them last summer too!
Agapanthus always seems to burst with flower! Love seeing them in clumps! In Australia they are generally a deep purply blue or radiant white! Beautiful shot!
I love this purple wonder! I think many of us are reaching into our archives to post sweet memories of our Flowers..winter is here.Brrr
BEAUTIFUL!!!! In Portugal we call them «Agapantes»!!!
This a lovely fragile flower. I like the colour too!
Is beautiful and elegant, soft color, thank you for sharing.
agapanthas are always a lovely plant … thanks for sharing.
Such an elegant flower!
Thanks for your visit, and link. You have a very lovely blog, and that flower is a beauty, nice spot of color on such a drab day here!
What a lovely flower. Thanks for sharing.
Loved your purple agapanthas. I like tall flowers. Reminds me a little bit of Allum flowers. What do you think?
Yes, PlantBuddy, Allum flowers I have seen in New Jersey, so it does look like one of those.
Leora: It is a beautiful flower from a special place.
Just beautiful. So delicate and I love the color of them.
It’s beautiful against that fence. Looks very tall.
Yes, agapanthus. I used to grow it in Northern California. It does NOT like hard frosts, I discovered one hard winter. Beautiful flower, to grow and to photograph.
Thanks for visiting and comments on Mistletoe. I should warn parents and people with pets, if they plan to use it around the house, that the berries and leaves are poisonous.
Love the color–especially this time of year. And the fence was interesting too. Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful Leora..I too would need the archives to post a flower. But it does cheer a person up to see them
