Last summer one of In the Garden's faithful readers and early commenter, Nina, dropped by the house and brought a lovely gift. The gift was of course a plant and not just any plant either. Agapanthus 'Storm Cloud' was the plant and it is a gift that keeps giving. This is the first year it has bloomed and I have two blooms! Agapanthus is also known as Lily of the Nile and is a lovely plant to have in the garden. Hummingbirds LOVE it! It is not hardy to my zone however so I store my plant, pot and all, under the house in the crawlspace where it sleeps for the winter. As soon as the weather warms up it comes out of dormancy and begins growing. This is a lovely lovely blue color that shows up well in the garden and I'd like to say thanks Nina!

And due to Skeeter's visit to Tennessee this week we have all decided to journey out to Nina's beautiful home for a visit. I'll tell Nina thanks in person today.
We want to wish Skeeter's Mother a very Happy Birthday today!
