A macro photograph of a budding agapanthus with colorful bokeh at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. Though not of the lily family, the beautiful blue flowers of the agapanthus plant are commonly known as lilies of the Nile and African lilies.
I especially love hydrangeas when they’re starting out. In this plant you can see its various stages of growth.
